I’ve tried about a half dozen biscuit recipes over the years, trying to find a good one. In order to be a good one in my mind the biscuits don’t just have to taste good, they also have to be easy, relatively quick, and use only ingredients I commonly have on hand. Because I’m not making a turkey and stuffing here, these are biscuits. Like, Oh my God we’re out of frozen bagels what will I put the scrambled eggs and American cheese on. I have to be able to whip them up quick.
So I put out a call to twitter and of course my friend Jennifer Perillo came to my rescue. She recommended this recipe by Dorie Greenspan. [UPDATE: That link no longer works. I’ve written the recipe out here.] I just made them and wow. First of all, from the moment I started to the moment I was spreading butter on one and popping it into my mouth, slightly less than 30 minutes had passed. Second, they used very few dishes and measuring spoons and only a little counter space. Third – which I haven’t tried yet – Dorie says you can cut the dough then freeze it before baking, and pop a few into the oven whenever you need them.
