To make these, you need a 4 foot length of 7/8 inch wooden dowel rod (you can purchase this at any hardware store) and coals from a nice camp fire (not available at a hardware store....you have to make it yourself).
Take one of the biscuits, put it on the end of the dowel rod, and stretch it evenly over the top 2 or so inches of the rod. Place the dough covered end about 6-8" away from the coals and slowly rotate the dowel rod, similar to roasting a marshmallow. Keep turning it until the dough browns evenly. When it is done, the biscuit should pull cleanly off the end of the dowel rod.
Take the cooked biscuit and fill the hole with your favorite filling, such as honey & butter, ham and swiss, or apple butter.
Hint: Try to rotate the biscuit pointing at the side of the fire. If the biscuit is pointing directly towards the coals, the end will brown too quick while the sides aren't finished.
Mom taught us this during our weekend camping trip 10/15/05 to the Davidson River Campground. It was a huge hit with the kids and adults and kept them entertained while she made eggs, grits, and bacon.
