….biscuits. OR so I thought until I tried Dorie’s Basic Biscuits. I have used her recipe lots of times and it never fails me. And Dorie is NOT a southern girl. Stylish! Sophisticated! Well-Traveled! Great cook/baker! BUT NOT SOUTHERN!!!!! She should NOT be able to make biscuits THIS good!!!
Dorie’s Basic Biscuits
Not only basic, but perfect. I made 1/2 the recipe and ended up with 3 3″ biscuits and 3 bite sized. Delicious with some Pear Raspberry Preserves and butter. The only thing I did different was to melt some butter in the bottom of the cake pan I was using which gave them a crispy buttery bottom.
And they rise so beautifully.
I have made these often just plain, but I have also made them with garlic and cheddar cheese, or just cheese. Also with some chives mixed in. Always good! Always perfect!
