My daughter is as difficult to feed as my husband. She too likes her German food, and she is particularly difficult for breakfast. She will eat any of the home-baked goods such as fresh waffles, pancakes but will not touch bread, croissant unless they are actually from France. I think I created a monster;-) As I was keeping my nieces and nephews for the week-end, I wanted to fix something special for breakfast so I decided to offer biscuits. They are so good when they come out of the oven… and you can dress them up with anything, jam, ham.. anything…I got this recipe from Martha Stewart’ book of Hors d’oeuvres.
Ingredients: 2 cups of flour, 2/3 cup of buttermilk, 1 tsp of salt, 4 tsp of baking powder, 1/2 tsp of cream of tartar, 1 tbsp of sugar, 1 stick of butter.
Preheat your oven to 400. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, cream of tartar and sugar. Using your fingers, mix the butter into the flour mixture and mix until the mixture resembles coarse mill. Add the buttermilk and mix well until it is well incorporated. Place the dough on a roulpat and with a rolling pin roll the dough out to 3/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutter of 2 1/2 inches to cut rounds and transfer them onto a silpat. Bake for 10 minutes or until they become golden.
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
