Mr. C had eaten all the frozen dinners. He was ready for a home cooked dinner, too. Bread is sparse on Dad's diabetic diet; that is what I was craving. I decided to make buttermilk biscuits. Ah, warm, buttery bites of goodness.
|As you can see, I had plenty of help.|
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbs baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
5 tbs unsalted butter
1 cup buttermilk
|Combine all the dry ingredients.|
|Grate butter into dry ingredients and toss to coat.|
|Pour in buttermilk and toss to combine.|
|Turn out on flexible mat.|
|Compress dough lightly by folding mat over dough.|
|Pat dough into a 1/2 - 3/4 inch high circle or square.|
Cut out biscuits with cutter the size of your choosing.
Place biscuits on a try lined with parchment paper.
Refried Beans with Monterey-Jack cheese
Browned New Potatoes
I am glad to be back home. I've missed you!
See you again, soon.
