This is usually how I spend my Sundays! [Picture via]
Happy Sunday! I’m not usually enthusiastic about Sunday because it means Monday is only hours away and I’m forced to go to work. Boo. I’m still holding out to the hope that someone out there will invent a plantable money tree and my life will be a permanent weekend! That, or I just win a large sum of money. Either or would be fabulous. However, after a fantastic night of sleep, I woke up this morning with more pep in my step than normal. Because of this extra jolt, I find it no better time than to introduce my new weekly feature, Sweet and Savory Sundays! I came up with this a long time ago and kind of forgot about until I discovered the note with the title in my iPhone. My Sundays usually consist of lots of cooking and baking, so the title fits this relaxing day perfectly! This new feature will also push me to write more because each Sunday I’ll feature a sweet recipe AND a savory recipe, a perfect way to get your salty and sweet tooth satisfied! Because I’m doing my sweet thang later today, I whipped up a savory and easy batch of home-made buttermilk biscuits for the breakfast in bed tray I made my hunny. Note: If you don’t like buttermilk, I suggest swapping for regular milk. The buttermilk flavor gives these biscuits a distinct tart flavor. For more savory flavor, sprinkle in some cheddar cheese!
What You’ll Need:
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 ounces fat free cream cheese
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons low-fat milk
How To Make Them:
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or coat it with cooking spray.
- Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
- Cut in cream cheese and butter with two table knives until pea-sized lumps form. Stir buttermilk in and form dough into a ball.
- Flour surface and roll dough out.
- Using a circle cookie cutter, cut out small biscuits and place on greased cookie sheets.
- Brush milk on tops. Bake for 13 minutes or until brown.
I reccomend eating these with a little butter and jam or honey for added sweetness!
