Well if you can mix together flour and cream then you can have biscuits just like that!  Drop the dough on a baking sheet and bake them until they are golden and tender but slightly crispy. OH Sooooo good! These biscuits are ultra-tender, and the fastest + easiest biscuits you'll ever bake!

Dug out of the depths of my family's recipe box, these biscuits remind you of the ones your momma, or grandma made.  The tenderness can't be beat!  

It's the day before Memorial Day and May 29th is National Biscuit Day! What a better way to honor that with the easiest biscuit ever.  To make the mini-biscuits I used a tablespoon cookie scoop such as this one.  I wanted to have a delicate biscuit to go with our array of breakfast items.  Plus they would double as a side dish for some So-Cal Chili I was making later in the day.

If you would like regular sized biscuits use a spoon and form them to your liking but you may need to adjust the baking time a little so they fully cook.  A simple baking sheet is all that is needed to bake them on.  You should either leave the sheet ungreased, or use parchment paper. (These work really well as they come pre-cut and already sized for your baking sheet)   Both ways work really well.

So if you have a love of biscuits like our family does, be sure to make these really soon.  They really are The. Easiest. Biscuits. EVER!

Drop Cream Biscuits

makes 12 mini biscuits

1 1/2 cups Self-Rising Flour
3/4 cup heavy or whipping cream

*If the dough doesn't come together readily, dribble in an additional 1 to 2 tablespoons cream, to make it totally cohesive


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

In a bowl mix the flour and cream until well combined and forms a dough.

Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop balls of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Leave an inch or so between biscuits.  Brush the tops of the biscuits with cream.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until they're light golden brown on top. Remove from the oven.  Serve warm, or at room temperature. Any leftover may be stored in an air tight bag for several days, or frozen.

Outrageous Oven Fries


Yum

Outrageous Oven Fries will leave them begging for more!  Perfect as a side dish to any cookout!  Slice of Southern

Have you got your Memorial Day bash main dish picked yet?  If not, take a look at these Attention-Grabbing Jalapeno Mushroom Sliders or Baja Chicken Sliders they are easy to make and both make outstanding entrees.  

And what better side dish to go with some yummy sliders than fries.

OUTRAGEOUS OVEN FRIES

These fries are healthier since they are not fried in oil but baked in the oven.  It's the only way we do fries now.  They come out perfectly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. 

I jazz up our fries with a spice mixture of paprika and garlic powder.  The combination is a winning formula and it's become our basic recipe.

Who doesn't love fires with their burgers or hot dogs?  And ones with a bit of spice just make them irresistible and additive.  Don't say I didn't warn you....as I can neither confirm or deny sneaking 1 or 5 from the baking sheet, hot from the oven.  Shhh! don't tell anyone! They really are outrageously good!

Enjoy!!





Outrageous Oven Fries

serves 8

4 large russet potatoes, washed and peeled
2 Tbls olive oil
3 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut each potato into planks and then cut the planks into sticks.  Place them in a large bowl and drizzle with oil, tossing to coat.  Sprinkle on paprika and garlic powder.  Toss to coat.

Place potatoes on a baking sheet, making sure they are level.  Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown, turning over once half way through the cooking time.  Serve warm.

GARDEN FRESH PASTA SALAD

Growing up my mom always loved a good pasta salad.  She made it often because they go with everything.  I don't remember a cookout or potluck growing up that didn't have a big bowl of pasta salad in attendance!

During the summer we have a habit of making a big pasta salad on the weekend so we can and eat it all week long with everything from sandwiches to grilled chicken.

They are easy to throw together and this one screams summer.  Fresh vegetables from your local farmer's market or grocery store are the star!  Filled with fresh spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, and bell peppers, this pasta salad is just delishhhh!  And don't forget the basil, garbanzo beans, and mozzarella, they create a balance to this salad that makes it irresistible.
