basic biscuits

…or something like that.  I had intended to make Buttermilk Biscuits.  I had followed the recipe…it said it was “basic.”  I had been having such good luck with scones recently that I thought biscuits would come out of the oven.  I’m pretty sure that, while what came out was delicious, it was technically not a biscuit. It was something more bready, with a bottom that had essentially fried in its own butter on the baking sheet.  More English muffiny maybe.  Whatever happened, this little breakfast roll was great with homemade jam…both apricot and concord grape.  I’ll have to try again for proper biscuits though.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or read Cooking for Comfort, as it was Jennifer’s pick this week. Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Looks delicious to me!

  2. Your biscuit looks perfect-and I love it slathered with the jam!

    Thanks for baking along with me this week!

  3. It may not “technically” be a biscuit but I still think it looks pretty awesome.

  4. I love apricot jelly Your biscuit looks very scrumptious!!

  5. That looks yummy with the jam. These made me very nervous!

  6. Hmm, the butter in mine did ooze a tiny bit, but not like you are describing. They look good though and I bet they were good with homemade jam.

  7. Whatever happened, it looks very good!

  8. Looks like a perfect little biscuit to me! Sounds amazing, too. 🙂

  9. How ever they look, if they tasted good…..

  10. Anything is good with apricot jelly! I think it looks great.

  11. They look deliciousm whatever you call them!

  12. your pix always look so beautiful and clean.

  13. How weird! It certainly looks like a biscuit. I’m sure the extra butter (which I’m assuming was the problem if it was oozing in the oven) didn’t hurt the flavor at all!

  14. whatever it is, it looks tasty

  15. Looks really good from where I sit. I’m not a biscuit lover but I really liked these and ate 2! Might need to pursue this whole biscuit thing more often.
