First recipe of the new year 2019! I tend to start in January with simple, easy, low-calorie recipes as I'm still full from eating since December. So I made butter biscuits. For most people, biscuits are a side dish at dinner. But for me, I love to eat them fresh out of the oven in the morning like pancakes or waffles. Usually with jam or butter.
I have this specific way of making them: I roll out the dough very thinly, and then cut the dough into rounds with a biscuit cutter. Then, I add two rounds of biscuit dough on top of each other. Does anyone else do this? They bake with a sort-of fold in the middle. And then you don't have to cut them! Just rip off the top part of the biscuit, add butter, and eat!
FYI, this recipe is made with Bisquick. If you live in Europe, like I am, then you can order Bisquick from MyAmericanMarket.com. Or make a home-made Bisquick mix.
