Cookbooks and Ideas


I love cookbooks.  I have several that are like my best friends.  The above cookbook is one. It is worn and tattered with many splatters.  I use this cookbook for my biscuit recipe and also my pancake recipe.  The recipes that are in this book are like the ones that grandmothers pass down to the next generation. 

A few days ago, I posted how to turn one homemade biscuit recipe into three different things.  You can read about that here.  My mom didn't want to make homemade biscuits, but she liked the idea of having blueberry biscuits.  She decided to try making blueberry biscuits using Grands canned biscuits.  She placed the biscuits on a baking sheet.  She made a well in the center of the biscuit.  She sprinkled a bit of sugar on the biscuit and then she added blueberry pie filling.  She baked according to the directions.  After they cooled, she made the glaze.  She said they were wonderful.  She is now thinking of other biscuit possibilities: apple cinnamon and cherry biscuits were a few she named. 

grace and peace,

I make blueberry biscuits too. A restaurant one of my daughters worked at started making them and they sold better than the cinnamon buns. I just fold the blueberries in my biscuit dough and then make the glaze after they bake.
