Okay, so clearly this is out of my normal wheelhouse, but I've been meaning to share this recipe for a while. And by share it, I mean write it down for myself, because every single time I make these biscuits I rack my brain trying to remember how I modified a few different recipes to make them just how I like them. So, you know, if you wanna take advantage of it, that's chill too.
But noms. These things are perfect perfect perfect for lazy weekend mornings on the couch with a cup of coffee and some soft scrambled eggs (courtesy of Chef Gordon Ramsey).
Makes 4 biscuits (they're super rich, so you might only eat one...unless you're me....).
Here we go:
In a small bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients. Add in your wet ingredients and stir with a spatula. Got that? So hard, I know.
Let the dough rest for a bit while you heat up a cast iron skillet over medium heat. You don't havvvveee to use a cast iron, but if you have one, why wouldn't you?? Toss those 3 tablespoons of butter in the pan while your pan heats.
While that butter is melting, divide your dough in half. Take one half and halve it again. Take that quarter of dough and knead between your hands. It'll be about the size of your palm, and you'll just want to fold it over on top of itself a few times to work all the ingredients together and shape it into form (that's right, no biscuit cutters here, folks!) Drag the biscuit on both sides through the melting butter and then set it into the cast iron. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
Now's for your patience. It'll take about 10-15 minutes for the biscuits to brown up and cook through, flipping to the other side about 5-7 minutes in. Sometimes I like my biscuits a bit gooey on the inside, so I'll take them off the heat early. Just watch them so they don't burn!
Pro tip: If your making eggs or something else to go along with these, turn the pan off a couple minutes early and cover it with a lid. They'll cook the rest of the way through, without burning!
Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
