The kids requested biscuits and jelly with dinner this week. Now, normally as a working mom I grab a can of Pillsbury from the store and go to town. My kids eat them just fine. But I got a wild hair to make my own. I got out my trusty Betty Crocker cookbook and made Supreme Biscuits. They are kind of a mashup of baking powder biscuits and buttermilk biscuits.
They turned out fine and the flavor was good. But I really need to level up my biscuit skills. I forgot to put the cream of tartar in and I definitely rolled the dough to thin. My biscuits came out pretty short because of those two factors. I did manage to keep the butter cold and not overwork the dough so they were soft and flaky.
I’m kind of in carbohydrate phase right now and I think I may fire up another batch for some chicken and biscuits or biscuits and gravy…..yum! What is your favorite way to have biscuits?
I love biscuits toasted with fried eggs over easy and very crispy bacon. Hot coffee with a little cream, please and thank you!
Sign me up!!
I thought you were cooking? haha!!
My favorite way is for someone else to make them. I’ve never been a successful biscuit baker.
Yum, those look like the ones my mom used to make! I usually use Bisquick but rarely have the patience for it.
Hmm I don’t think biscuits means the same over there as over here. Our biscuits are always sweet and just made for dunking in a cup of tea!
Less tea, more chocolate covered me. Mmmm choccy biccys!
This kind of biscuit looks more like a scone, but even a scone would need some jam and cream!
You may have to explain these a bit more for us clueless Brits!
A biscuit in America is basically a vehicle for jam/jelly, gravies of various sorts or to serve as the “bun” for breakfast style sandwiches. It’s a quick bread that is usually leavened by baking powder.
Phil wants to do some baking. have to get him to take some biscuts
