I would rather read a book than go to a party or have a picture of my food in a cookbook rather than have a picture of me in a magazine. I am a square, an L-7 wienie. (Who remembers that movie?)
So it is no surprise that my biscuits, instead of being nice and round, would be square. (Nice segue, right?) If you have ever made homemade biscuits before, you know the process is, well...a process. Rolling dough, cutting. Rolling excess dough, cutting. It goes on and on until you have used all of the dough. Here is my method.
|I have a good recipe for a baking powder biscuit. I have used it for years. These just happen to be whole wheat.|
|After you roll them out, instead of using a round cutter and having to re-roll the trimmings, I just use a pizza cutter or an ulu to cut the dough. It saves you from having to work the dough over and over which tends to make biscuits tough.|
|As you can see, they are not uniform. The edges are not perfectly square. Who cares! We are just going to slather them with butter and jelly.|
