Homemade Biscuits with Strawberry Butter
Grandma recipe for the win, yet again. Found this gem in my Grandma's recipe stash and realized that I've never made homemade biscuits. Mostly because they seem difficult and the tube from the grocery store is easy and tasty. Also, can we talk about how panic inducing opening the tube of biscuits is? I know it's coming and I still can't handle it. It scares the ever-living crap out of me every single time.
So, guess what? I was wrong. These biscuits were really easy. Came together and done in about 30 minutes. They were the most amazing things warm, right out of the oven. So light, fluffy and all the adjectives that describe delicious biscuits. I'm pretty proud of myself.
Now onto the strawberry butter. Sweet, sweet strawberry butter. I swear I have been seeing strawberry butter everywhere on Instagram. I've never had strawberry butter, but I don't think I can ever go back. You guys. This stuff is incredible. It's also very simple. I want to try this stuff on waffles, french toast, any kind of toast actually. So good!
I obviously put this all over the biscuits and ate them immediately while still warm and it was the loveliest thing I've eaten in a long time. (I need to use the word lovely more often) But that is the best way to describe these. Lovely. I feel like anytime you serve biscuits to people, you need to gather everyone in the kitchen to literally eat them right out of the oven straight from the baking sheet. Still warm, melty butter. That is when they are at the peak of greatness.
Easter is coming up and these would be a perfect addition for Sunday dinner. And even if you aren't in charge of the biscuit making or just want to pop a tube and be done, then at least make this strawberry butter.
