This pastry goes well with savory pies (buttermilk pie, meat pies, yam pie, veggie pies, etc) - a nice change of pace! The cornmeal in the pastry gives it a lovely crumbly texture. Based on a recipe from "Food and Wine Magazine," Oct 2004.
This is a great way to use up a small quantity of mashed potatoes but I'm sure it can be doubled or tripled for a larger quantity with no problems. I love these muffins with soup for lunch. Originally published in Canadian Living magazine.
DH and I buy at least one loaf a week of ciabatta and eat it with olive oil. I finally decided to see it I could make a better bread than the brands we've tried from the store. We agreed that this is the best bread we've EVER had! The first loaf was gobbled before the second one came out of the oven! :) Can't wait to make it again!! Note: The dough will be VERY sticky - do not add more flour. The bread itself is not tall and fluffy. It has a wonderfully crisp, tender crust. It would be perfect for an Italian sandwich, if cut horizontally, of mozzarella, basil, tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and s&p.
These buttermilk biscuits are authentic. This recipe came from my great-great-grandmother, and was handed down to all the women in my family, and we are all Southern. I am the first one to commit the sin of using a food processor (lol) but I find it works very well. I would put these biscuits up against anyone's - they are perfect in every single way. I hope you all enjoy them.
This is really more a tip than a recipe - It is so ridiculously easy. After hunting high and low for the recipe for restaurant yeast rolls/bread that are served in many chain restaurants & steakhouses, I was astonished to learn that very often they merely use pre-made ordinary yeast dough and honey flavored margarine - The secret "recipe" I had been searching for was actually just a method.
This is an easy never fail recipe. You don't even use a rolling pin! Change it to suit the meal you are serving them with - add 2 tbsp parmesan cheese and a bit of basil & oregano, try 1 tsp grated orange peel, or just before baking sprinkle the top with cinnamon & sugar Use your own imagination
This recipe was given to me by a neighbor, now deceased. It can be halved, doubled, tripled, quadrupled... whatever... to accommodate your needs. It's pretty easy for a yeast based bread; even easier if you have a heavy duty mixer with a dough hook or a large food processor. The rolls freeze very nicely if slightly underbaked. Time does not include rising time
