I have spent most of the day cooking for Thanksgiving. The amount of food that is being made is crazy. One might think that it was for many more than nine people, but everyone has certain things that they want and before you know it...
In addition to a regular herb stuffing, I am trying a new one I found, Smoky bacon and biscuit dressing. I made the biscuits this morning and they are fantastic. They are really easy to make, almost as easy as the boxed stuff. I am thinking that the kids would like them warmed with butter and honey as a breakfast treat.
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbs. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. sugar
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
Preheat an oven to 425°F.
In a bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add the cream and stir until no lumps remain.
For each biscuit, drop 1/4 cup batter onto an ungreased baking sheet, spacing the biscuits about 1 inch apart. Bake until the tops of the biscuits are pale golden and the bottoms are golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes.
Makes 12 biscuits.
