biscuits!

Apparently biscuits are the most dead easy thing to make and I never knew.

What I had really wanted to make were scones. I had been obsessing about scones all week, but it had been an especially busy week, and besides, the fridge still contained the garlic-cheese scones that I'd made last weekend. So, when the snow started coming down this morning, and we finished off the last of the garlic-cheeses, I thought, "yay, scone-making time!"

Unfortunately, scones require butter. After rooting around in the fridge and two freezers, I determined that the only butter in the house was a sad little leftover pat. Bursting with the desire to bake something, and needing a recipe that used neither butter nor yeast (another thing missing from our pantry), I clicked around for a bit and found these cream biscuits.

They were so easy. Seriously, they finished cooking in the time that it took me to clean up the mess I'd made in bringing them together. Sift flour with baking soda, salt, and sugar; add cream until it forms a dough; flatten the dough and cut circles. (Well, in my case, I cut eight-pointed stars. We only have one set of cutting shapes, and the recipe called out a 2.5-inch circle; unfortunately, our circle was 3 inches, and the closest thing to the required size we had was a star. So I went with that.) The biscuits baked up in fifteen minutes.

"Bonus," K said, "you get to bake and I get biscuits."
