MANNING - Thanksgiving is less than three weeks away, and if you're the friend or family member who has been given the pleasure of bringing biscuits to the annual holiday meal, the Clarendon Pilot Club may have a solution to your dilemma.
Members of the club have been busily baking dozens of the delicious, flaky, homemade gems for several weeks. The club's terrific culinary geniuses didn't make just one or two dozen, not even 100 dozen biscuits. They made 184 dozen biscuits. That's more than 2,200 biscuits. That's a lot of measuring, kneading, cutting out and baking. And, if past years are any indication of how well these biscuits are revered, then you had better be early - that's before the doors open early - to get a dozen or two packages of these mouthwatering morsels. And the cost is just $5 a dozen. That's not a lot to pay to make Thanksgiving dinner worth remembering and get on Santa's nice list for Christmas.
"We will have casseroles, cakes and pies," said club member Margaret Robertson. "We'll also have dressing for Thanksgiving and ambrosia. There will be a lot of food available for Thanksgiving dinner."
Robertson said she's also thinking about making some fudge to sell.
All the proceeds will go toward the five scholarships that the club awards to the area's five high schools.
"The scholarships are in memory of Dottie McFaddin," Robertson added. "Dottie founded the Clarendon County Pilot Club."
Along with all the Thanksgiving delicacies, attendees will be able to choose from an array of delicious jellies and jams, which will make a wonderful pairing with those hot-out-of-the-oven biscuits.
The Clarendon Pilot Club's annual bazaar will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, at Manning Presbyterian Church, 233 N. Brooks St.
If you have your heart set on those biscuits, don't count on 184 dozen biscuits lasting very long. Remember, it's first come, first served.
