There is virtually nothing in my pantry or refrigerator right now. Literally nothing.
It's actually a little sad how empty my refrigerator is, but a girl's gotta eat somehow.
Monday morning, I woke up to gray dreary skies and 1/3 of a my income tax final to finish. The only thing that seemed appropriate on such a day was coffee and biscuits. However, I knew that whipping something up out of the ingredients I had on hand was going to be a challenge to say the least. All Recipes to the rescue.
They have a neat function where you can search for recipes based on particular ingredients and pick what type of meal you want to cook. And no lie, these are the ingredients I typed:
I wasn't expecting much. I mean, I didn't even have eggs.
But lo and behold, I stumbled upon the best slightly sweet biscuits I've ever found. You can find the original version here, but here's my slightly different version
|Mint leaf totally not necessary, but pretty.|
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 8 tablespoons butter, cut into cubes
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tablespoon milk
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
I usually take how to pictures, but you're literally just dumping things in a bowl. Nothing that really needs explaining there.
- Preheat over to 450 degrees F.
- In the bowl of a food processor, combine all of the dry ingredients.
- Add the butter cubes to the food processor. Pulse several times until the mixtures resembles small peas. If you do not have a food processor, simply cut the butter using butter knives.
- If using a food processor, move into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture and add the sour cream and 2 tablespoon of milk. Mix until just combined. Add more milk, if necessary.
- Using a large spoon, drop the biscuits onto a cookie sheet.
- Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
- While the biscuits are baking, mix the glaze. Start with approximately 1/3 of powdered sugar and add about 1-2 tablespoons of milk. Add it slowly, because it really doesn't take a much liquid to dissolve the powdered sugar. Once dissolved, add the cinnamon.
- Once the biscuits are slightly cooled, drizzle with the glaze.
|Perfect with coffee or tea.|
