We 3 gmas baked together
We 3 gmas baked Savory Drop Biscuits from "Bread Alone" , by Daniel Leader and Judith Blahnik... although none of us dropped them, we all shaped them because we tend to think in Sandwiches... The recipe is an easy one on page 309 of this book... onion, rosemary... sauted together and then basically added to a buttermilk biscuit dough... very, very good.
Barb shaped hers beautifully and you can just see all those onions and that fresh rosemary... crunching around in there. Those look like a great companion to ANYTHING!
Beautiful biscuits they are!
Helen cut hers with her bench knife and made the perfect accompaniment for her roast, carrots and potatoes... remnants of our Christmas dinner together Saturday. While she was putting these puppies together she was also baking a Chocolate on Chocolate birthday cake for her 17 year old grandson.
I cut my biscuits with the same cutter I use for English Muffins... so they would be small sandwich sized for canadian bacon and egg, or roast beef and melted cheese... with a touch of horseradish...
A few other things were going on in Barb's kitchen, like creating this awesome Bacon Bread... She sure has that blistered crust method down... Great Dutch Oven, hot pan, hot oven and all that Artisan creativity... Great... but not enough for one day... She added in Nancy Silverton's Onion Rings... She was baking and frying out of three different cookbooks... What a multitasking wonder she is!
We again enjoyed our selected bake together to have our sister time, creating something and to share with our families and friends.
Next week we are baking "My Best Pita Bread" page 304, again from Bread Alone... together on Monday... in addition to whatever else is going on! We will let you know if they puff! ;-)
