I raved in the previous post about these Buttermilk Biscuits. Southern Living shared four variations of the Buttermilk Biscuits and here is one of them. These Cinnamon-Raisin Biscuits quoting GI Joe ” are vacation good!” Before jumping in the kitchen to prepare them take the time to read the post on Buttermilk biscuits and make the following changes. You’ll have a breakfast hit on your hands.
Omit 2 tablespoons of melted butter . Stir 1/2 cup golden raisins, 1/3 cup chopped pecans, and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon into the chilled flour mixture before adding buttermilk. Proceed with recipe as directed. Stir together 1 cup of powdered sugar and 2 -3 tablespoons buttermilk until smooth. Drizzle over warm biscuits. Makes about 2 dozen.
Today my classes made cinnamon rolls using this recipe. First making this biscuit dough. You be the judge of the appearance. I was very pleased with the results. Of course, there is always room for improvement for some groups. They are all novice cooks. Several of them still try to measure flour in a liquid measuring cup. One group forgot to preheat their oven. Another handled the dough a little too much.
Those of us that cook know what it feels like when compliments come our way, but for high school students working on their self-esteem this is a big morale booster. At least 5 students this week shared photos they preepared and ate with their families. They were proud of their accomplishment! That makes me smile! Have a great weekend after voting for your favorite group.
