Here's a recipe that Older Daughter loves to make. It's fairly quick and absolutely delicious.
The dough has yummy things like basil and Parmesan in it.
She was using some fresh milk some friends had given us, which first meant she had to skim (suck) off the cream.
Then we could use the milk itself in the recipe.
The dough is divided in half, then rolled into a rectangle...
...and sliced into bars.
Melt some butter (or margarine)...
...then divvy it up between two baking pans.
The bars of dough are dipped and rolled in the melted butter...
...then placed in the pan.
Ready to bake.
Ta da! Delicious and easy.
Here's the recipe. (We normally double it because everyone loves these so much.)
Parmesan Butter Pan Biscuits
1/3 cup butter or margarine
2 1/4 cups flour
2 T Parmesan cheese (we double this amount)
1 T sugar
3 1/2 t baking powder
1 t basil leaves (we add about a tablespoon)
1 T parsley
1 cup milk
Heat oven to 400F. Melt the butter and pour into a 9" baking pan.
In a bowl, add all the ingredients except milk. Stir in milk until just moistened. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead about ten times or until smooth.
Roll dough into 12x4" rectangle, then cut into twelve 1" strips. Roll the strips in the melted butter and place in the same pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned.
