TWD: Sweet Cream Biscuits
This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie selection is Sweet Cream Biscuits. I think this is probably the most “rustic-looking” baked good I’ve ever featured on this site. Last week when I was reminiscing about life before a food blog, I forgot to mention that pre-blog it didn’t really matter what my baked goods looked like, just that they tasted good – and these biscuits tasted great, nice and light! It still shouldn’t matter, but sometimes my vanity gets the better of me and, let’s face it, this biscuits are a little scrappy. I was nervous about overworking the dough and tried to keep as light of a touch as possible; I think I erred on the side of under mixing the dough. Oh well, I will know next time. They did rise. I had initially been anxious to make these to serve with a dinner, simply for the novelty that we weren’t baking something sweet, but I ended up serving them with eggs for breakfast and they were delicious then, especially slathered with butter and honey. I had two and it took a lot of restraint to not go back for a third, and luckily Josh finished the leftovers within 24 hours (it was only a half batch), so I didn’t get too tempted to snack on them.
This recipe rated a 7.5 for Deliciousness and a 2.5 for Effort, for an EDR of 3. Our hostess this week is Melissa of Love at First Bite; Melissa’s posts are always upbeat and fun to read and her treats always look terrific.
