Normally, once summer hits all routines and structures fly out the window. This summer, however, we are still gathering a few mornings each week to read together and to enjoy our Thankful Thursday tea parties. It’s an opportunity for devotions, discussions, drawing, and devouring yummy treats.
One of our favorite new tea party treats is biscuits. Though I didn’t get a chance to pick as many peaches as I would have liked before they started rotting off the tree, I was able to make a few jars of peach jam this year. (Sadly, one broke in the sealing process, so we literally only have 2 left now that we’ve consumed one!) Anyway, biscuits, tea, and peach jam on an overcast summer morning surrounded by my favorite people… lovely!
Here is my favorite biscuit recipe that I literally have taped to my baking cabinet for quick reference:
3 cups all purpose flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1 TBSP sugar
1 stick butter (cold)
1 1/4 cup milk
Mix the flour, baking powder, and sugar. Cut in the butter abut 1 tsp at a time. Add the milk. Mix to form a dough ball. Roll out the dough about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out biscuits with any cookie cutter. Bake @ 420 for 12 – 14 minutes.
