Biscuits are such a nice treat for breakfast – warm, buttery, and they taste great plain or with jam, gravy, or an egg on top! There are a lot of good looking recipes out there, so I’m going to test a bunch of them – it’ll be good practice for me plus I’ll see which ones are keepers.
For my first try at making biscuits, I went with this cheesy chive biscuit recipe from A Cozy Kitchen. The only thing I added was a bit of crushed red pepper flakes. A little zip of flavor sounded like it would go well with the cheddar and chives.
These were really simple to put together. I needed a little more buttermilk to get my dough to hold together, but all-in-all very easy. You don’t even need to roll out the dough – just press it out with your hands. I loved that part! If you have a biscuit cutter, great, but if not… a stemless red wine glass works really well, too.
Was anyone else a fan of Raffi? I was singing his “Biscuits in the Oven” song while baking these: biscuits in the oven gonna watch ’em rise, biscuits in the oven gonna watch ’em rise, biscuits in the oven gonna watch ’em rise – right before my very own eyes.
These tasted pretty delicious, and the addition of red pepper flakes was nice. I may try reducing the amount of butter next time, but then again, they didn’t get as nice and fluffy as I expected, so maybe I overworked the dough. A few things to work on next time I make biscuits. Practice makes perfect.
Do you have any biscuit recipe suggestions?
