Every time I’ve visited my Reader recently, I have been overwhelmed with Thanksgiving recipes. (Not that I’m complaining, heck I’d love Thanksgiving recipes in July!) And so, I’ve given in to blog peer pressure and decided to post my own Thanksgiving recipe. And yes, I know, eyes are rolling because, please, who’s going to look at a simple biscuit recipe when you’re going to be bombarded with stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey, and pumpkin pie? Well, first off, I’ve taken note that every time I go over someone’s house for a holiday dinner, they have made store-bought, frozen biscuits. And I understand that in the haste of preparing a feast, biscuits might be the last thing on the cook’s mind. However, I started making my own biscuits last year and everybody noticed the difference.
Secondly, to be perfectly honest, I haven’t come up with many recipes for Thanksgiving. While my family is good sports about trying my creations, Thanksgiving is the one time that they want the traditional stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey, etc. And so, I have very little flexibility (Note: I say little because I do change things up a little bit. Hey, if they are not going to help me cook, they can’t blame me if I “accidentally” add something in that’s not apart of the standard menu 🙂 )
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp unrefined coconut oil, melted
2/3 cup milk + a few additional teaspoons
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix in the coconut oil and milk. Kneed a few times with your hands, adding TEASPOONS of milk, if the dough is too dry. Break the dough into 10 small balls and press each down slightly on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes.
Enjoy and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
