|Pillsbury "GRANDS", step aside. There's some pure, non-hydrogenated goodness coming from my kitchen.|
I'm not on Twitter a lot, so I am quite surprised that I even caught Bazu's tweet. It must have been fate, because at the time, I just so happened to be looking for a simple, yet mind blowing, flaky biscuit recipe!! So I marked it with a star, and vowed to get back to it later... (it ended up being months later, but better late than never...)
Now, some background on me and biscuit making:
I have tried the Vegan with a Vengeance Biscuits and Tempeh Sausage gravy recipe:
Gravy was two thumbs up for me, but not so much for L (who is an avid tempeh hater, and devout sausage gravy fan...) Probably not the best gravy to make for her, but, oh well, I tried.
The biscuits turned out pretty well too, except for the fact that I did not have biscuit cutters at the time, and resorted to using a glass. Definitely not the best move on my part, as you can see: I committed the cardinal sin of biscuit making by twisting the glass to cut through my dough, resulting in no fluffy, flaky sides at all :(
So, one Pampered Chef party later, and I had me some brand new biscuit cutters in FOUR sizes!!
I though so!
So, for a change of pace, one weekend morning, treat yourself to some home made baked biscuits. I serve mine piping hot from the oven, with lots of Earth Balance vegan margarine, and blackberry or strawberry jam. A batch of ten can usually serve TWO in my house ^_^
