I so love Nicole's Taste & Create. Every month, she pairs me with another blog so I can get to know someone very well. All she asks in return is that I create something from my partner's blog.
My partner this month is Shaw Girl, a southern belle now living in Washington DC. As coindence has it, both of us started blogging in February. And she's already a daring baker. Where do you get the courage, girl!
Adventures in Shaw has lots of easy, healthy recipes - just the kind I dig so I did not have to look far. In fact, I decided to make the first recipe I saw on the blog : Mama's Mayonnaise Biscuits. Shaw Girl has adapted this super-quick and delicious recipe from her currently favorite cookbook “Bon Appetit, Y’all”.
I followed her recipe to a T, except that I halved all quantities and used a "lite" mayonnaise. It's simple enough. Just mix together 1 cup plain flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 tsp sugar and 1/2 tsp salt. Shaw Girl put heaped tablespoons of this dough into greased muffin tins and baked them for 20 minutes until golden. I did the same, except that I dropped dough directly on the baking sheet so my biscuits were more free form.
I had them when still warm and they were yummy. Just like my favorite rolls.
My one liner : Super-easy biscuits that are also super-yummy. This is something I'd make more than once.
