Being able to make some type of bread to go with a meal or for breakfast is nice. I didn’t want to worry about how to create pea-sized butter pieces in flour, not over-mixing nor getting the butter too warm. We were making nice flaky biscuits, not re-creating rocks to go in a panorama project.
So I thought
- Let’s do drop biscuits
- Is there a recipe that uses melted butter?
Well, lo’ and behold that is what we did. We adapted a recipe from the internet and created one that my kids have made several times. They even will make these the night before and bake them off in the morning, hence the optional stop in the middle of the recipe directions.
These are great with dinner — your child can make these on the side independently while you are prepping the main course and still contribute significantly to dinner. Or s/he can make the parts for the morning so we can celebrate the coming day with fresh, yummy biscuits for breakfast.
