For this week, Melissa of Love at First Bite chose the Sweet Cream Biscuits from page 23. I was so excited to make these because just the other day I was talking to hubs about how I need to learn to make biscuits!
Well, these were wonderful! Super easy to throw together, once again only requiring a couple of dishes and very little mess...and so addicting! I'm not really sure why Dorie says to cut these w/a 2 in. biscuit cutter--they were tiny, and I will definitely use a bigger cutter next time--but they were the perfect size for popping into your mouth! (bad choice...my tummy is too full...) She also says you will get about 12 biscuits...I got at least 2 dozen...another reason why I questioned the size of the biscuit cutter. I even googled "diameter" to make sure I wasn't just confusing it with radius! lol.
I ate a few with my favorite cream honey and some fresh lemon curd : )
I was surprised at how high the little biscuits puffed up! If only my puff pastry would get his high...
I definitely recommend BOTH of these recipes, and it was a nice change of pace to have something a little less "fancy" and time consuming. Both of these can be thrown together in minutes and make for wonderful snacking...I think I'm gonna use some of the rest of the biscuits for mini ham sandwiches for hubs to snack on tonight. He's gonna love me! : )
And don't forget to stop by the TWD site to see who baked along this week!
