Yesterday I woke up in the mood for something besides cereal. Maybe because I had cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday. This happens sometimes, when I don't have time to cook. So I went into last year's scrapbook of recipes and tugged out the instructions for my cousin Juliana's Baking Powder Biscuits. They take about 3 minutes to stir up, and 20 minutes later, you can enjoy warm flaky buttery biscuits dripping with jam, honey, pumpkin butter, or whatever else you please.
Baking Powder Biscuits, by Juliana Peterson
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup wheat flour
1 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
2 TBSP melted butter
about 3/4 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
1. Whisk together the flours, salt, and baking powder.
2. Stir in the melted butter.
3. Gradually stir in the milk, stopping once the dough is wet but thick.
4. Drop by the 1/4 cup full onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown splotches appear. Makes about 6.
Could it be any easier? Enjoy!
