Biscuits were one of the first things I ever learned to make on my own. If my parents would let me take care of one aspect of dinner on my own, it could be biscuits. For me they are hard to mess up, but they are so impressive by how delicious they taste. There is little that is better than a fresh homemade biscuit, with warm melty butter. :) I'LL TAKE TEN, THANKS.
I once went on a backpacking trip, and the only thing that I wanted during the long hours of hiking was to eat a fresh homemade biscuit. Yes, I got through that journey all thanks to daydreaming about biscuits, no shame. I made them immediately when we got back into civilization. It was nothing short of euphoric.
I've made biscuits at home, in the homes of friends, and even across the Atlantic ocean when I lived Glasgow. I made them to feel at home, even when I was not. They are my staple comfort food!
BUT WAIT A TWIST!
I've been known to play around with biscuits by making variations with whole wheat flour, cheese, nuts and seeds... but now a new first, featuring like only my favourite ingredient, SWEET POTATO. Gosh, I just love em.
These are good for breakfast. And lunch. And of course dinner. Sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar and call it dessert. Call it, my new favourite biscuit.
