it’s biscuit time

easy biscuits-hIf it were up to The Hubby it would always be biscuit time.  I honestly think he would have biscuits at every meal if I made them…unfortunately for him I rarely make them so when I do it is quite the BIG DEAL!

I decided a while ago that since The Hubby loves them so much maybe it should become his job to make them. I mean he could make the biscuits when I was making dinner or the gravy (if it were breakfast…or dinner…WOW I really want gravy now).

Anyway back to the biscuits…I was showing The Hubby several recipes I have gathered over the years and he settled on this one…he said he thought it sounded the best.  So off he went to biscuit making.  Now I did step in at one point and added in the pepper (my grandmother did this and I just love it) and I also decreased the sugar from 2 tablespoons to just 1…The Hubby doesn’t love a sweet biscuit and I don’t really either, so I knew this would be a good choice for him….plus I was going to be putting my homemade roasted strawberry jam on the biscuits so they were going to sweet enough.  Other than those changes The Hubby did it all, and look how good they came out!! 

The were light and airy while still have a great bite that only a great biscuit has.  I have to say I was very impressed with his biscuit making skills and will for sure be putting them to the test again (very soon).
