or - biscuit. biscuits always make me go "squee," the really fabulous flaky biscuits that just came out of the oven and are dripping with melted butter and jam or honey.
i must make biscuits, that is my project for the week. i'm starting with a very basic recipe on a bag of self-rising flour that i got to make yellow cake over the weekend (that cake was a hot mess, made the icing way too pasty and my niece and nephew had a very hard time making it look decent. photo is below, my father actually photoshopped it, that's how bad it was. maybe i should be working on icing cakes, but i'd rather work on biscuits).
how will i make biscuits on a regular basis and not gain a million pounds? well, my evening ice cream and dinner's carbohydrate will be replaced by that day's test biscuit (if it's good, if it's just one bad bite, that doesn't count).
so i need advice - what makes your perfect biscuits perfect? i'm sure i'll figure out my own little spin on it, but in the meantime, i'd love some ideas.
