Can I still call it a bash if there were only three people there? I wanted to have a few friends over for an afternoon of biscuit baking. But my kitchen is not that big and so, well, it was a small bash.
Regardless, we had a blast and tried several different recipes, eating our fill and saving the leftovers for later. In preparation, I had printed out several different recipes to choose from. I supplied all of the flour, butter, buttermilk, and pans and we also had some non-biscuit snacks while we cooked. One friend brought some fresh rosemary to try as an add in. Another brought strawberries and whipping cream for strawberry shortcake.
- Orange Biscuits – I don’t think I have a picture of these without a portion of one eaten. They were sticky and gooey and yummy. They were also extremely persnickety! I’m not sure that I would make these again.
- Buttermilk Yogurt Biscuits – These were fabulous. They rose so high and were light and fluffy. They were the group’s favorite.
- Yeast Biscuits (aka Angel Biscuits – more on these in a post to come)
- We added rosemary and cheddar to the Buttermilk Yogurt Biscuits – those are the rectangular ones in the photos. This recipe was a perfect vehicle for add-ins.
- Finally, we used the plain Buttermilk Yogurt Biscuits to make strawberry shortcake with whipped cream. Delightful!
- There was also an experiment with Gluten Free Bisquick. I can’t really count them as biscuits. They were more like eggy corn muffins – not necessarily bad, but not a biscuit!
