Have you ever baked something that you have been craving only for it to turn out to be a huge disappointment? That was me this morning, biscuits…how hard can it be?!
It wasn’t just the biscuits that I was looking forward to, but the spread that was going on them. First, let’s just start with the biscuits…
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/3 cup toasted wheat germ
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 2/3 cup buttermilk
- 2 tbl. olive oil
- 1 1/2 tsp honey
so far so good right?! Here’s where I think I went wrong, may have needed more butter.
Sift dry ingredients and mix 2 tbls butter with a pastry blender.
Now add the wet and mix just until combined.
add a couple handfuls of cranberries
Turn out onto counter and lightly kneed , roll out to 1/2 inch thick and cut out circles
Place on sheet pan and bake in 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.
The finished product…
wasn’t terrible but certainly not my favorite, what a bummer! So to try and jazz up the flavor I decided to spread some Cranberry Lime Sauce on them.
I loved this spread when I tasted it here but to tell you the truth I really didn’t care for it today. Maybe it was the crackers that tasted so good! lol
Nope, I don’t think anything can save these poor biscuits except….
Miley! Do you think she knows that she is getting my kitchen blunders?? Frankly, I don’t think she cares! lol Back to the drawing board for me!!
