My boyfriend confessed to me that one time, I ate his biscuit.
That sounds totally gross. Let me back up. Once night, we had a crazy hankering for KFC. So like any normal couple, we satiated the craving with a bucket, 4 biscuits and 2 sides. Apparently, after dinner, I wrapped up the leftovers and told him to take them. When he went home, he forgot them.
The next day, lunch rolled around and I ate the last biscuit, but left Jesse the remaining chicken and sides. At least that’s how I remember it.
Yesterday, he confessed. I ate the last biscuit and he was silently sad about that for a while.
Naturally, I laughed and apologized profusely. Then, of course, made some biscuits to make amends for my biscuit-devouring habit.
Crazy Good Biscuits
adapted from Epicurious
2 cups flour (plus extra for rolling out)
2 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
5 tbsp butter, cold
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
1-2 tbsp melted butter (for brushing)
Preheat oven to 425F. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add butter and using your fingers work the butter into the flour until you get coarse crumbs. Next, add yogurt, cream and milk and stir with a spoon until combined. Turn onto a floured surface and knead 2 or 3 times, then form into a disk shape. Pat it down with your hand until it’s about 1 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or the bottom of a cup (I used the bottom of a mason jar I use to make pies in jars, so mine were small biscuits), cut out biscuits and place onto a parchment paper lined baking pan. Repeat until all dough is used up. Brush with melted butter and bake 10-15 minutes (this will vary depending on the size of your biscuits) until golden brown. This will make about 2 dozen biscuits (depending on size).
Serve with whatever you like. We like to keep it Latin so we ate them with carne asada, grilled corn and squash.
