Breads/Pastries

This is one of many versions of biscuits. My mom & sister had/have the better skill but I try. Isn't it weird how the same recipe turns out differently, when made by a different person? Another simple & delicious recipe for new bakers & kids to try out! Get them in the kitchen young! Watch me make it here.

Quick & Easy Homemade Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour, sifted
  • 2.5 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 4.5 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425°F/218°C.
  2. Sift all dry ingredients into a bowl.
  3. Then cut in shortening, until mixture resembles course oatmeal. You can use your fingers, 2 forks or a pastry cutter.
  4. Beat in eggs and milk.
  5. Then add to dry ingredients, lightly mixing until mixture holds together. Do not knead or over mix.
  6. I add most but not all of the liquid to the flour mixture, to start. Sometimes I use it all, other times I do not.
  7. Roll out on a lightly floured surface.
  8. About an inch thick.
  9. Bake at 425°F/218°C until golden brown. About 9-11 minutes.
  10. Do not over bake. A dry biscuit is a bad biscuit.

Notes

The linked video shows the 1/2 recipe.

This is one of many versions of a biscuit. Some use eggs, others to not. Some use buttermilk, others do not. Some use water & vinegar, others do not. You get. Use the recipe that you love, or the ingredients that you have on hand.

This is a quick, I-have-a-craving, go-to, recipe that I use throughout the year. For when I not only want to use any leftover pastry but when I don't want to stare at an entire pie. No, I don't trust myself. I will eat a piece every day until it's finished.😂 This is also a great way to get the kids some kitchen practice. Give them the leftover pastry to work with while you make the standard size pie. Watch me make it here.

Apple Tart For 1 or 2 – Recipe

1-2

Apple Tart For 1 or 2 – Recipe

Ingredients

  • Leftover pastry. About 1/4 of a single pie crust, on average.
  • 1 medium-large cooking apple, of your choice. Cleaned, cored, peeled & cut diagonally. 6-8 slices per half.
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar, unpacked
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp maple syrup or omit
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cornstarch

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F/204°C.
  2. In a small bowl add your sliced apple, along with all of your ingredients. Tossing so that the apple slices are coated well. Set aside.
  3. Roll out your left over pastry, placing in in a prepared single serving oven proof dish.
  4. Add your apples & bring the edges of the pastry up. The pastry does not need to close at the top.
  5. Bake in oven for 25-ish minutes. The first 10 minutes at 400°F/204°C. The last 15 minutes at 350°F/176°F.
  6. Check to make sure that the apple is cooked through. I use a sharp knife, which when inserted into the apple slice, easily passes through.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  8. Toss in nuts, seeds, dried fruit & or lemon zest to add a little extra flavour & nutrition.
