Today I want to share my Biscuit recipe! It's simple, it's different and you may not want to try it, because it has some different indgredients. You may be hesitant and say "no no no". But I promise you that if you don't try it, you'll never like it. However, if you do, you just might find something new that you like. A little bit like life.
I love biscuits! I have spent the last few years perfecting my recipe. When I was little my Grandma use to let me play with a little of the dough while she was making the biscuits. Maybe this is why I let my three year old Little Man help me. Making biscuits with, Little Man, has become a tradition. He loves every part of the process. A little extra flour on the table and flour don't bother me and it's so worth watching him. Who knows, maybe one day he'll be a famous chef. Or at the very least, when I'm old and gray, he'll know how to cook his mama some warm biscuits.
First, you need the following items:
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 cup of unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsn Sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick - I use smart balance)
1 cup of plain yogurt
Mix flour, salt, baking powder, sugar. I just mix with a spoon by hand.
Add 6 Tbsp of the butter. Cut the butter. *Melt the last 2 Tbsp of butter to pour on the top before you add them to the oven.
If you've never cut butter before, it just means mash it with a fork until there are small pieces throughout the flour.
I just stir it with a spoon until it's nice and clumpy. Sprinkle a little flour on a smooth, clean surface and plop down the clumpy dough. Sprinkle a little more flour on top. And then pat and form the dough. Don't over do it here. NO KNEADING! Just pat and form until it's not sticky.
Enjoy! And remember, life is sweet and too short not to share. Happy eating. -Little Mama Hen
Oh, and if you're in the mood for something a little sweeter...I found this recipe over at Food Snots blog. OMG so good! I cheated and added some confection icing on top. I think I probably ate half the pan. :)
