The Baker recently spent 4 days in rural Virginia. She and her friend decided to bake classic biscuits following the friend’s mother’s recipe. This simple dish, her friend told her, tends to accompany every meal of the day — and in fact, while visiting, the Baker could verify this.
The actual process of mixing and baking was quite simple. They began by cutting cold butter into flour. Next, salt, sugar and baking powder were added. Lastly, milk was added alongside a bit of water. The dough was lightly mixed and folded to create layers that would puff up upon baking. They rolled the dough to just over an inch thick and then the biscuits were cut via a cup and baked at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.
While this blog may have been a re-creation of one 3 years ago for you long-time blog followers, this time the Baker actually had the opportunity to taste the product (because last time it was Yom Kippur). They were very good!
