Let’s make a list of things that are awesome (because you know you love lists as much as I do).
- Ice cream.
- Tablespoon. J
So basically, this list makes me a hermit who likes puppies and this awesome website called Tablespoon, but it also means I’m a biscuit fiend. So when the craving hit me one recent weekend – after getting up ridiculously early for a weekend morning AND having already exercised (thus the excuse for biscuits) – I got to baking these Black Pepper Buttermilk Biscuits
Good grief, people. This is biscuit madness up in here! These babies are buttery, flaky, peppery, made with buttermilk and doused in heavy cream – HEAVY. CREAM. Let’s think about how awesome that is for a second. Great. Glad you’re back.
They’re also pretty dang easy to make, which is why I decided to make them on this one insanely productive morning. I wanted to bake them for the husband for breakfast before he woke up, in one of those rare (read: never happens) moments when he is awakened by the intoxicating smell of delicious biscuits being baked and finds me all fancy and cute-looking wearing pearls and heels in my sparkling clean kitchen… but the reality was more like a war zone of flour on the table, my hair akin to a bird’s nest and my socks mismatched and holey. BUT STILL. I made biscuits. That’s the moral of the story.
Whatever you find awesome in life – cookies, bike rides, the Grand Canyon – I hope you also find a bit of awesomeness when you bite into one of these delicious biscuits. And I hope whomever you share them with feels the same way. Biscuits just make the world a better – nay, more awesome – place.Stephanie (aka Girl Versus Dough) joined Tablespoon to share her adventures in the kitchen.
