So far, this blog has served only the purpose of keeping friends and family up to date.  I'm going to start adding some new things like recipes, both for fun and to add some substance to the blog!

Today's feature recipe is biscuits!  This is my go-to recipe whenever I want biscuits.  They are perfect as a side with chili or scrambled eggs or as the main meal with jam or honey or sausage gravy for breakfast.

Elise's Biscuits

1 cup flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar (I use a full teaspoon if I plan to eat them with jam or honey)
1/4 teaspoon salt (the original recipe calls for 1/2 teaspoon, but I always halve the salt)

6 Tablespoons milk
2 1/2 Tablespoons oil (I usually substitute applesauce for half the oil)

400 degree oven

1. Stir together the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately.
2. Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir until moistened.
3. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a slightly greased cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 12-15 minutes (12 is usually enough).

Step 1                                                 Step 2

Step 3

Yum!  I use unbleached flour, so the biscuits come out a little darker than when using bleached flour.

Also, I'm looking for a great gravy recipe for biscuits & gravy.  If anyone has one, please point me in the right direction!
