I made biscuits. From scratch. Me, all by myself…okay with the help of a Paula Deen recipe but my execution was perfect for once.
Here’s the story.
Once upon a time I went to Publix. Although I knew better, I went without a grocery list and as usual I forgot many things to include bread, Ritz crackers and biscuits. Instead of rushing out in the dreary and rainy weather I thought for sure that I might have all of the ingredients on hand to make homemade biscuits after my attempt at making those
nasty cupcakes over Christmas. Well call me Suzie Homemaker I had all of the ingredients..barely, but I had them.
I started off by cubing the butter..at least this is my take on it.
Then it said something about cutting the butter into the flour mixture. Cutting? *blank stare* I translated that to mean mash, so that’s what I did.
Since I never have proper utensils I settled on using my cutting board to roll out the dough. “Roll out” to be taken lightly seeing I have no rolling pin and instead flattened it with my hand.
Next I had to cut out the biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Please no shade or laughter at my biscuit cutter.
The recipe stated to butter the pan. Instead I used Baker’s Joy
My oven has been known to sabotage me and thwart my efforts at being great in the kitchen so while the recipe called for 12 minutes I started off at 8 min and they were ready in 10.
Yahhh!!! I did it. If you try this recipe, note that it says it yields 3 dozen and I only got a dozen because I wanted them thick. Ow!!!
What are you good at making from scratch?
