Snow, snow, snow, I’ve been in the house all week and I am actually enjoying it. I’m 5 ½ months pregnant right now so I’ve been able to catch up on some me time and experiment different recipes for you (the reader). It’s been nice; from reading, to cleaning, to working out, making a snowman, and cooking different things. I have actually gotten a lot of things out of the way that I probably wouldn’t have, had it not been snowing.
Well, I was online Friday late pm and I came across some biscuits and I all of a sudden got a craving for a nice warm biscuit with some honey on it. Go figure, I didn’t have anything in the house that resembled anything like a biscuit or the ingredients to make one. So, snow and all I figured that Saturday I would go to the little store up the street from the house and buy some of the ingredients to make them.
I woke up and of course didn’t have the craving for a delicious warm biscuit, but we however decided that we would go to the store and buy a few fresh veggies for a nice soup. It was gorgeous out, the snow was falling and it was all white outside, I got geared up and we walked up the street. In the store we decided that we should get some nice warm bread; as you can imagine there was a line because I think most people were out of food. The lady before us ended up getting the last 5 pieces of fresh bread, so my Husband and I turned around and I got the ingredients and decided that I would do an in-between of biscuits and bread and this is how this recipe was brought to life.
They were delicious and light, nothing too heavy and perfect with the homemade preserve I had bought last week.
Perfect for a snowy and cold day. The best thing is that I had never attempted to make bread so this was a good step for me. I think these would be great with honey, preserves, peanut butter, eggs at breakfast, a small sandwich, and anything that you can think of.
Yields 15 buns
4 cups flour
2-½ tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 packet dry Yeast
1-½ cups warm water
3 tbsp. melted margarine or butter (olive oil is an option as well)
Let yeast set in warm water for 5 minutes
Mix dry ingredients together first and then add the yeast mixture.
Roll out on a lightly floured flat surface to about ¼ inch thickness, then cut into buns with round cookie cutter or biscuit cutter. (I made them just a tad bigger than a biscuit)
Place on baking sheet, brush margarine on top and cover with cloth and let rise for about 1 hour.
Bake at 400° F (200° C) for about 12 minutes or until top is golden brown.
