I wanted to make a biscuit for you that would work every time, and this is it. And it has a delicious salty-sweet maple cream you both brush on top and use for dipping. Start with cold butter, don’t over-knead or handle the dough, and your biscuits will love you tender, every time.
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1½ tablespoons maple syrup
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
½ cup (1 stick) very cold unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch cubes (keep it in the fridge ‘till you’re ready to use it)
3 cups flour, plus more for kneading
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1½ cups buttermilk, shaken
Cheese should be an essential part of your Thanksgiving dinner.
The easiest recipe on the table.
Meaty filling plus creamy topping equals best dinner ever.
