real soppin surp with any kinda bread is still a treat.
cinnamon butter sugar bisquits
bisquits and soppin surp with some real cow salve butter rolled in. If the butter is cold it'll stay in chunks when ye fork smash it in the surp.
Mama would take bisquit dough and roll it out to about 1/4-3/8" thick about the size of a big man's hand, then put 2-3 spoons of reconstituted dried peaches, or apples, or apple sauce with cinnamon and fold it back closed and finger mash the edges to seal it and bake them real light brown. They was shonuff good with real cow salve butter rubbed on both sides.
She called them a *fruit fritter*. Nobody in the family makes any rhubarb fritters anymore. She musta took the recipe with her.
There aint nuthin no better than anybody's Mama's cooking, and ye cant go home again.
