It's Tuesday and I really owe Melissa for picking such a simple, delicious recipe for this week's Dorie Treat. I'll admit I'm not really a biscuit master. I'm sure these could have been taller, had I followed directions better, remembered all of Alton Brown's advice from his Biscuit episode, or maybe just been born in the South or something! Even so they were yummy. I could also mix them up in about two minutes using only my left hand, which is saying something (since I can hardly brush my teeth or pick up Baby Strawberry with that hand, really!)
The neat thing about these biscuits is that they don't require any fat besides (a little, ahem) heavy cream. Today, like many days, I had half a carton in my fridge from some ganache or something I made earlier. I whipped up a half batch of these biscuits, finished off the cream before it went bad, and really, really enjoyed the spicy sausage gravy my mom made to put on top. Because although this recipe is simple enough for an uncoordinated girl with a hand cast to make, I really can't be trusted with gravy or anything that requires cutting at this point. Hopefully next week. My hand is getting better each day and with any luck Baby Strawberry won't learn to crawl before I'm back to baking- because then I'm really in trouble!
