Back to School Biscuits!



Why is it when the calendar read
"summer break" the hooligans were
up before the sun and hard at play,
but now that the calendar reads
"back to school" they refuse to budge
from their beds and I've had to train
our dog Otto to jump on them and lick
their faces until they finally rise?




Thank goodness the puppy is persistent
or they'd never get up! Some days, they do
try to escape the dog and pull the covers
over their heads. Good thing I have
more than one trick up my sleeve.
Nothing says "get out of bed" more
effectively than fresh from the
oven apple cinnamon biscuits.

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 wheat bran
2 tbspns sugar
1 tbspn baking powder
1/2 tspn cinnamon
1/4 tspn salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup finely chopped apples,
peeled and cored
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tspns orange juice

Directions:

Combine flour, bran, sugar, baking
powder,cinnamon and salt. Cut in
the butter. Make a well in the center
of dry mixture. Add the
apples and milk and stir until moist.
Turn dough onto a floured surface
and knead 10-12 strokes or until
smooth. Pat or roll dough to 1/2 inch
thickness. Cut dough with floured
biscuit cutter (I used a glass -- just
like Mom taught me). Place biscuits
on an ungreased cookie sheet and
bake in a 400 degree oven
for 10-12 minutes. Remove biscuits
and cool slightly.
Meanwhile, stir together powdered
sugar and orange juice for a simple
glaze. Drizzle over biscuits and serve
warm. Makes 12 (and it will get
those sleepy zombie children out of bed
and ready for school)!!!
