Tom Brady is his family’s 'designated biscuit maker'

Tuesday December 15th, 2015

Tom Brady is a quarterback, spokesmodel, husband and father, but he holds one title that may be more important than all of those combined: biscuit maker.

The Patriots superstar recently sat down with People Style Watch to talk about his and wife Gisele Bündchen’s Christmas traditions, and Brady revealed he has taken over for his grandmother as the family’s head pastry chef for holidays.

“My grandma always had a biscuit recipe that she used to make for us. So every holiday — Thanksgiving, Easter, Christmas — there is biscuit making,” he says. “When my grandma passed away, now I’m kind of the designated biscuit maker using her recipe. They certainly don’t taste as good as what she used to make but I still kind of enjoy doing it. That’s a little bit of tradition in our house now.”

The four-time Super Bowl winner also revealed his love of Christmas music and his favorite Christmas gift as a child: a BB gun.
