I had no idea that biscuits didn't have to have butter or lard and could still taste so good!
I used half regular flour and half whole-wheat flour. I made the dough one night to freeze. My mom was coming for dinner the next night and I knew I wouldn't have time to make them after work. Dorie writes to make the biscuits and freeze them on a baking sheet before securing them in an airtight container. I popped them in the freezer on a baking sheet...and totally forgot about them! The next morning they surprised me, and they looked a little worse for the night - a little frosty. Given this little misadventure, I was a little worried how they would taste. But they were delicious! They came out being very crisp on the outside and doughy in the middle. I didn't roll and cut them, instead just roughly forming them into rounds. My mom and I both prefer rough biscuits. They aren't as pretty, but they have more crispy corners on top.
I would definitely make these again, although it won't replace a good buttermilk biscuit. It's a little too sweet for that. We had it with coconut curried carrot soup and salad and it was perfect. Thanks to Melissa of Love at First Bite for this week's pick!
