Plain Biscuits

Plain Biscuits


If there's anything that I love more than making cookies and granola, it's making biscuits. Okay, maybe I don't like them MORE, but they are certainly on par with them.

I have experimented with making cheese biscuitswhole wheat cheese biscuitsapple cheddar cheese biscuits...pretty much any biscuit combination with cheese, but for some reason have never thought to just make plain old regular...biscuits.

Now even though these biscuits don't look all too biscuit-y. Let's just call them rustic. But what they lack in presentation make up for a million times in taste. I ate around 3 straight out of the oven, and snacked on a couple throughout the day. To me, these are almost as dangerous as having a jar full of cookies left out right in front of me.

The reason that I love biscuits oh so much is because it's the closest thing to making bread in the shortest amount of time. I mean, freshly made bread is one of my not-so-guilty, truly delicious pleasures in life. But then there's waiting for the dough to rise, kneading the bread, waiting for the bread to cook..and it seems like my entire day is done.

This way, I can have a bread like morsel in under 30 minutes. Now how's that for amazing!
