Funny- I actually received a pastry cutter as a shower gift when we got married...almost 5 years ago! This was the first time I used it :) I mixed the dry ingredients and cut in the butter until the mixture resembled oatmeal.
I rolled out my dough and got to use another new toy! I recently purchased my first set of biscuit cutters to make the Hamburger cakes for Father's day. I can't wait to use them to make homemade hamburger buns in a uniform size!
I was able to get 12 biscuits from this recipe. I placed mine on a silpat and brushed with a little milk. Baked at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes.
I was a little nervous when they came out of the oven. I thought they were going to be like rocks...but I was wrong! Flaky and light!
Papa's card and wrapped gift- wrapping paper was made by Robyn!
I had my biscuit with a bowl of fresh berries...
My husband had his biscuits with lots of butter! A fun experiment, and I must say, I won't buy the canned biscuits ever again!!
