I can’t say enough about biscuits. I love them.
I tend to brainstorm a new biscuit recipe at least three times a month, and at least one of those ideas always comes to fruition (clearly, this is a girl who never gets sick of biscuits).
This recipe for Lemon-Thyme Biscuits
is one of my favorites. It’s the perfect biscuit for summertime breakfasts and high teas (if that’s something you do) with the flavors of bright, citrusy lemon and refreshing, herby thyme. Combined with the quintessential butter pockets found in biscuits, it’s a delicious treat that won’t weigh you down in these warm, active months.
The thing about biscuits is, despite their simplicity, they really are an art form. It does take some practice to get that perfect flaky crust, and I still don’t get it right every time. The main thing to remember is to not overwork the dough, and to try to keep those cubes of butter as cold and clumped together as possible. That way, when you bite into a biscuit, you get those surprise butter pockets that I mentioned above. Buttery bliss, that’s what that is.
I’ve enjoyed these on their own, alongside a refreshing soup for a light dinner, and spackled with lemon curd or a pat of extra butter (you can never have too much butter on a biscuit). In less than an hour, you can have these yummy, aromatic biscuits on your table without even breaking a sweat. And that’s after using the oven on a hot summer day!Stephanie (aka Girl Versus Dough) joined Tablespoon to share her adventures in the kitchen.
