Weekends are for carb loading.
What is it about weekends that I want all the beautiful carbs? From happy hour bruschetta on Fridays, to margaritas with endless chips and queso, to Sunday mornings filled with all the gooey cinnamon rolls and all the tender, flaky biscuits possible. What is it about carbs that just make a girl giddy?
Growing up, there was always a carb on our dinner table. Most of the time, we had the pillsbury dough boy to thank for that; but every now and then, it was my Mom’s homemade Italian bread. Those dinners started my love affair of bread and butter. Or butta, if you will.
The steaming, tender biscuits and croissants was where my little hands went first. And kept going back for. Thank goodness I had a sky high metabolism because I surely ate my weight in carbs. And ice cream…
Now that I run my own kitchen, our dinners aren’t graced with carby goodness most evenings unless we have guests. We are fancy like that. So when the holiday’s approached, I wanted to step up my biscuit game and forgo the prepackage biscuits that I was believed that was all I could handle. Boy was I wrong.
Why did I think making biscuits was difficult? I am kicking myself for not making them sooner in life. I have seriously been missing out.
Have crispy exteriors.
Super soft, tender layers.
Oh so flaky.
Stupid easy and quick to make.
And are perfect spread with a bit of jelly, peanut butter or with your sandwich favs!
I went with whole wheat flour here to make them a bit more heart healthy and guilt free. They are slightly nutty due to the whole wheat flour. They puff up wonderfully making them the ideal way to start your day, end your day and just get you through the day!
Now, just slather a bit of butta on that biscuit and call it good!
