Wiregrass Cheese Biscuit recipe

Wiregrass Tsiis Biscuits

Wiregrass is in honor of the unique region of Alabama we call home and ‘Tsiis’ is pronounced ‘Cheese’ in our native language Frisian. Our award-winning farmstead cheese, flavored with a traditional Dutch blend of chives, parsley, onion, and garlic, is the perfect compliment to these buttery biscuits.
