TWD: Sweet Cream Biscuits
I’ve been AWOL for a couple of weeks while I was traveling (& recovering from my vacation!). I picked a good week to come back to Tuesdays with Dorie. Melissa of Love at First Bite chose Dorie’s Sweet Cream Biscuits. It was a very easy, low stress recipe.
These biscuits came together really quickly.
Several other TWD posters said that their biscuits didn’t rise as expected so I used extra baking powder.
Even so, they didn’t rise as much as I had hoped. They were very good, but crumbly.
Honestly, I think part of the problem was that I overworked the dough.
You may remember I recently tried Peter Reinhart’s biscuits from Artisan Breads Every Day. I’m sorry, Dorie, but I liked his better. Yes, they were more difficult to make and yes, they probably contained more fat. But, I preferred them. I may try these again but today’s attempt left me underwhelmed.
It’s Thyme to Eat!
