Since reading the book "The Help" I've been craving biscuits. I totally blame the book. All their talk of southern food...it's not fair...I'm a very easily influenced person. The last time I made biscuits I think I was in junior high...so, since my craving for biscuits was in fact SO STRONG I decided to give it a whirl. They did not turn out as fluffy as one might like, but I actually liked them a little crisper. Here is my photo journal of the biscuit making event of 2011:
Flour. The foundation.
I searched high and low on the internets for an easy biscuit recipe. Haha. Right on the bag people!
Buttermilk. Key ingredient.
No fancy biscuit shape cutter thing...used a glass.
Laying them out.
Pretty excited at this point.
A wee bit over cooked...oopsie.
Because I'm adventurous I made some with turkey sausage in the middle of some...
And with the leftover dough I made some random cinnamon and sugar biscuit strips (my mom does this with her leftover dough...she taught me well.) I really think we're onto something. Biscuit Sticks. I think they could be huge. Cinnamon and sugar + biscuit = YES.
Okay...I wonder how many times I've blogged about food? Hmm...probably a lot. I love food.
