Let’s talk about bread for a second.
Bread is the one thing I’m always in the mood for.
If the bread is bad at a restaurant, I probably won’t be back.
I could make a meal of bread and butter and a glass of water.
Bread rocks my socks.
So you can imagine that quick bread in the morning is going to be pretty high on my list of loves, right?
Yesterday morning I woke up with the biggest craving for homemade biscuits I have ever had. Who knows where these things come from, sometimes they just appear! But regardless, there I was in the middle of the house wanting a bread item.
Thank goodness for these biscuits…I don’t know what I would have done without ’em!
PERFECT BREAKFAST BISCUITS
(inspired by America’s Test Kitchen)
- 2 cups flour
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
- 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Add the wet and stir until just combined. Dump the mixture out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 20-30 seconds. Pat into a 1/2-3/4 inch thickness and cut (you can use a circle cookie cutter or just use a knife) into 2-inch pieces. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment (or a Silpat) and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Serve hot with butter (duh) and honey, or make your favorite breakfast sandwich out of them.
Oh, and not that I know from experience (or do I?), try not to eat the majority of the batch in one sitting. You know, you don’t want a tummy-ache or anything… 🙂
