Which is Better: Dolly Parton’s Cornbread or Biscuits?

I’m baking my way through Dolly Parton’s baking mixes. This time we’re trying the cornbread and biscuits.

I’ve made a lot of cornbread in the past, using other mixes, and it’s always so dry! This called for a lot of milk and butter, so I had high hopes for a moist cornbread. As for making biscuits, this was my first time making one that didn’t involve popping open a can. 😄

Cornbread Pros: The cornbread recipe is much simpler. The biscuits require rolling out the dough (unless you opt for a drop biscuit). I definitely rolled my dough too thin and didn’t get the thick fluffy biscuit on the cover so don’t blame Dolly that they look more like “disc-uits” than biscuits.

Biscuit pros: the cornbread deflated a little in the middle but the outer pieces came out perfect!

So which one tastes better? The cornbread mix was hands down the best cornbread I’ve ever made.  The biscuits are good…but they need a little jam and butter. My husband used one in a sausage and egg biscuit and loved it.  I would make both again but be careful to not roll out the biscuit dough too thin next time!
