MAGICAL LITTLE BISCUITS #recipe #mystery @AbbottMysteries

This little recipe is so much fun to make and so surprisingly easy,  we had to share it.   It is, as they say, ‘all over the internet’ but it was found on a scrap of paper clipped (possibly) from our local paper, which has an excellent cooking feature on Wednesdays. We felt like some biscuits and we always have these ingredients on hand. There are other versions about with cream that involve having ingredients of equal weight. That recipe seems to come from King Arthur flour, so should be reliable. We plan to try those as well, because everything seems better when you can have fresh biscuits.

You will notice that this calls for self-raising flour. You probably know that self-raising already contains the baking soda and salt and makes for a softer biscuit.  We decided to add chives to our two ingredients because we are crazy about chopped chives these days.  Next time, it might be something different.



But now TA DA!  


TWO INGREDIENT BISCUITS (plus chives makes three)

For seven to eight biscuits

Preheat oven to 400 F.

1 level cup self-raising flour.
1 level cup 5 % fat (or higher) plain Greek-style yogurt
1/8 cup fresh chives, chopped (or fresh herbs of your choice)
We think you could substitute a bit of cayenne or whatever suits!  Don’t substitute low or no fat yogurt though because then you get heavy little lumps. Just sayin’.
You can easily make more or fewer biscuits. It’s just equal parts and presto!

 

Directions

We think it was faster to make them than to type directions. So there!
Mix flour and yogurt until it forms a ball.  


 Work in chives or whatever add-ins you’ve chosen.  



 This has taken about a minute!
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Using a ¼ cup measure per biscuit. Scoop up, smooth out biscuit a bit and place biscuit on parchment paper-lined pan.  



PRESTO!


Bake for about 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown.  



These best eaten warm, but we can attest they’re fine the next day after twenty seconds in the microwave paired with a nice piece of cheese.
Wasn’t that easy?  We can’t wait to try the cream version. Someone just needs to get the scale down from the top shelf.





We like to think our book collector mysteries are fun, easy to read and surprising too!  All five titles are available in print, e-book and audio format. Don't miss out!
