Cracker Barrell breakfast via Google Images
My kids also love breakfast for supper. Usually we have sausage, gravy, biscuits, eggs, hash browns and sometimes bacon too. Here's the thing though, I always make canned biscuits. I love me some Grands!
So, today when I picked up the kids from school, I got the same question I get EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. "What's for supper, mom?" When I said we were having breakfast, there were actual cheers from the kids. They love breakast as much as I do. Only problem was, I was out of canned biscuits. Why? Because Kroger has them on sale and I didn't want to buy them for twice the price at Wal-Mart, but I never made it to Kroger. So, I decided I would, once again, TRY to make homemade biscuits.
Don't those look yummy? I got the recipe here. The photo is from the same sight. The problem is, I do not have a good biscuit making track record. They usually turn out heavy and dry. I have tried dozens of recipes and tons of tips. Use cold butter. Don't over mix. Brush the tops with beaten milk and egg mixture. UGH! Wanna see my biscuits?
Looks like a hokey puck!
EPIC FAILURE! They were AWFUL! It's like they didn't rise, at all. They were dry and crumbly. I have never claimed to be an awesome chef, but I do okay. I can follow a recipe, usually. Why can I not make biscuits? What in the world am I doing wrong? My baking powder is still in date but there isn't much left in the Clabber Girl tin. Maybe it's lost it's lift? I have the same problem with my boobs. Too bad ya can't slap a bra on the baking powder can.
So, does anybody have a fail proof biscuit recipe, other than a can of Grands? Any idea what I am doing wrong? I'm looking for light fluffy biscuits, not crumbly and dry biscuits. ICK! HELP!!!
