Happy Biscuit Baking Tuesday! This week's selection comes from Melissa of Love At First Bite. If you check out her site, you'll see how diligent she was in attempting to make a perfect biscuit. I think she got it right with the White Lily flour and over the top when she made sausage gravy to go with them. Drool City!
I used all purpose flour for my biscuits. I have the worse depth and height perception. I didn't roll out my biscuits, but patted out the dough. Still no clue, and ended up with some biscuits an inch high vs. the suggested half inch.
But guess what! They rose!!! Not as pretty as I would have liked, but they tasted yummy. Lorrie from With a Grateful Prayer Thankful Heart made an apricot butter to go with hers. I had strawberry rhubard preserves handy so I turned that into a butter spread. Oh so yummy!!! The outside of my biscuits were a little crunchy and had a littly grainy textural look on the outside. Inside, these biscuits were soft, fluffy and a little dense. I ate two of them and my tummy is VERY full!
