Biscuits with a Bite

This id our third post on biscuits and we can assure you that it won’t be the last šŸ˜€ The basic recipe is a Southern biscuitĀ to which we all all kind of ingredients like e.g. cheddar, rosemary,Ā thyme or as this time jalapeƱos.

These were made because we had forgotten to by a baguettes for last nights dinner and we wanted to use the remaining jalapeƱos we had in our pantry. They turned out to be really good and the chili flavor from the jalapeƱos makes it a bit spicy but not hot. If you are a afraid that the biscuits gets to hot, you can remove the seeds from one of the jalapeƱos, when you make them the first time (cause we know that you will make them again)! Hope that you will like them as much as we do šŸ™‚

Enjoy!

 

Ingredients (12 biscuits)

2 1/2 cups + 2 tbsp. flour

2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. granulated sugar

1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces

3/4 cup milk

3 large eggs

2 jalapeƱos, chopped

In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients and whisk until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the chopped jalapeƱos and whisk again.

Beat 2 of the eggs slightly and add to the mixture together with milk. Knead until just combined and it has a sticky and moist texture.

Place the dough on a slightly floured surface. Knead until smooth.

Roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Fold the dough halfway over and roll again. Do this 4-5 times. Be careful not to roll all the air out of the dough. Cut the biscuits with a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter.

Place the biscuits close together on a piece of baking paper. Beat the last egg slightly and brush the top of the biscuits.

Bake at 400F for about 18-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool for a few minutes before serving. These were served with baby back ribs and a leek and tomato salad, but you can serve them with all sorts of meat or saladsĀ :-)

Southern Biscuits

Are you a fan of biscuits too? We just looooooove them, and make them at every given opportunity šŸ˜€

They are quick and easy to make, and tastes delicious – what’s not to love about that? Furthermore, they can be served as a side dish for almost any kind of meat, but our favorite is definitely to serve the biscuits with sausage gravy – the perfect comfort food on a tired and lazy sunday šŸ™‚

Another great thing about these biscuits is, that you don’t need a knife to cut them in half – you just place one hand on the bottom and the other hand on top of the biscuit and twist it – nice and easy!
