The hot biscuit runs a poor second to cornbread, but is considered of higher social caste. We abrogate and deprecate cornbread when we have guests, but we should consider ourselves deficient in hospitality if we served a company meal without hot biscuits.–Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Cross Creek (1942)

Visitors to Florida can see where Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings worked on her farm Cross Creek as well as where she wrote her novel The Yearling, for which she earned a Pulitzer Prize in 1939. She was also the author of Cross Creek Cookery.
