Homemade Biscuits (Inn at Perry Cabin, St. Michaels, Md.)

Gustina "Miss Gussie" Harmon has been baking her famous rolls for more than two decades at the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, Md. Not your typical dinner roll, these herb and cheese puffs are seven layers of heaven, with alternating ribbons of pastry, butter, herbs, Cheddar cheese, and duck fat. Day-old rolls are then used as croutons served with the Caesar salad (which, of course, is served in an edible, bowl-shaped Parmesan crisp).
