Cheddar Chive and Jalapeño Biscuits
Do you hear that? That’s me patting myself on the back. I have conquered biscuits.
I know, I know my blog name does include bake. I began Sweet Life as a way to practice my baking skills, learn new techniques and practice..practice. The thing is I might have subconsciously slid biscuits to the back end of my baking practice.
Have I made them before? Yes.
Did they resemble hockey pucks and taste like saw dust? Yes. Yes. and Yes.
I live in fear of my family requesting biscuits. So lame.
This weekend as I browsed Joy’s new cookbook my eyes scanned over Jalapeno biscuits. Dang.
I flipped past the recipe 3 times and kept on coming back to them. Dang.
When I read her recipe I thought you know I can do this. The steps were simple, the ingredients were right up my alley (jalapeno-swoon) and she states “the mixture will be shaggy,” okay I can do shaggy.
So I did. And guess what? They were light, fluffy, bursting with jalapeno flavor. No hockey puck, no saw dust.
To say I was excited is putting it mildly. Picture a happy dance, because it so happened.
Hello biscuits lovers these babies are loaded with jalapeno studded, cheddar cheese and chives.
Brushed with buttermilk and dusted with salt.
Everything needed for a hearty breakfast. Serve alongside eggs a steamy cup of coffee and you set.
Sweet Life Disclosure: I was invited to participate in the Cooking Spotlight and received the cookbook from the publisher. My thought, love and passion remain my own.
