The Comfort Biscuit

DSC03609_2My best friend is from cozy, quintessential New Brunswick. I went to visit for two weeks one summer and became acquainted with all things East Coast with a touch of the British Common Wealth…and loved it. As a part of our wedding gift, Lori gave me a few recipes, one of which was for “Don’t Twist Your Biscuits”. Below is my adapted recipe for those days I am craving a comfort-food biscuit with a healthy…twist.  DSC03621_2A Twist on Don’t Twist Your Biscuits

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon honey

1/3 cup melted coconut oil

4 tablespoons baking powder

1 egg (or I have used a 1/4-1/2 cup yogurt depending on moisture)

1 cup buttermilk (milk with a dash of white vinegar) (and more if needed)

I also added an optional handful of chopped herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano)DSC03628Preheat the oven to 425.

With a pastry cutter (or two knives), cut all ingredients together.

On a floured surface, knead until you can bring together the dough together in a large round.

Roll out on a floured surface to about 3/4 inch thick (mine pictured were a hair too thin). Cut into cylinders using the top of a mason jar or a glass (But don’t twist! As the original recipe says;)

On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, bake for 20 (ish) minutes.

Serve warm with butter and a dash of molasses, or with a chili dinner–as we did!DSC03639_2The
