Tuesdays with Dorie: Sweet Cream Biscuits April 20, 2010

Filed under: Baking,Breakfast,Tuesdays With Dorie — pastrybrush @ 12:43 pm

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Melissa of Love At First Bite.  She chose Dorie’s Sweet Cream Biscuits, which are located on page 23 of Baking: From My Home to Yours.

Who doesn’t love a warm flaky biscuit straight out of the oven?

Answer: No one because biscuits are fantastic 🙂

Back in college, Mandi and I would frequent Gillies, along with everyone else in Blacksburg, and their biscuits are fantastic.  That is the one thing I would look forward to when stopping in for breakfast.  The biscuits were huge, pillows of yumminess that were freshly baked and literally walked around the corner from Bollo’s.

I have tried my hand at making biscuits before, but they just don’t get as tender as I would like them.  With Dorie’s recipe they were easy and I didn’t even have to get out the tub of lard out of the pantry 🙂  Straight out of the oven, I pulled one apart and slathered butter and homemade peach-blackberry jam.  Wow, these were so perfect.  I even picked one up and ate it plain and it was still soft, tender, and yummy.

I think the keep to this recipe is not handling the dough very much, and you will get a perfect biscuit each time.  Melissa, thank you for picking the Sweet Cream Biscuits they were great.  I am definitely going to make this again 🙂

    Ok so your biscuits get my vote for being the best looking biscuits around! They are big and flaky..and so tasty looking. I thought maybe you got that picture out of a Martha Stewert cookbook!

      Thanks Michelle 🙂
      My flakiest biscuits were actually from the scraps that I patted out to cut out more biscuits. Which made me laugh. I guess since I folded the dough over on itself it made more layers and they just puffed up more
