Fresh from the oven these buttery flaky biscuits are just what is in order. They are so easy to make that you really won’t want to tell anyone. Seriously. Make them think it took you all day!
Even if you have the best main dish it could always be a little bit better with fresh homemade biscuits. Store bought ones do not even compare. If there was a battle between the 2, homemade wins hands down every time.
This recipe was inspired from the chunky seafood bisque I made from left over seafood and broth from the neighbour seafood boil night. My husband was delighted as fresh biscuits were pulled from the oven just minutes prior to our family taking to their chairs around the dinner table.
I think everyone at the table was a fan as they sure did not last long.
Biscuits are a little on the weird side. Weird but very good. They are crisp on the outside and flaky and light on the inside. Not quite a bun and not quite a cake. They easily hold together as one unit and delightfully crumble when broken apart.
I have never really made biscuits that much before, but will now. These are so easy to make and would be a great accompaniment to a variety of fall dishes. All the great kinds of soups and chilies would definitely be complimented by a side biscuit. The possibilities are endless.
You could always switch to the herb or cheese choices to make it your own.
