The other day I was trying to take a nap, but I couldn’t get the idea of pickle biscuits out of my mind. So here they are. Not overly pickley in taste – but just a nice hint of it. I’m sure you could vary the type and amount of pickle to your liking.
The idea was somewhat born of the cucumber muffins I’ve been baking. I mean, if you can put a cucumber in a muffin, why not a pickle in a biscuit? This is, thus far, the only recipe I’ve thought of that I couldn’t find a recipe for on Google. But, never fear, my Slammin’ Drop Biscuits recipe was ready to be altered. Here goes.
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 stick melted butter (cooled)
3/4 cup equalish parts of well chopped pickle and sour cream
(Not very exact, I know. Know this, the sour cream is needed for the science of the recipe to work)
Mix your dry ingredients in a bowl.
Melt your butter and let it cool.
Put your pickles in the food processor or mini chopper and add the sour cream – blend until it looks like this…
Then add your cooled butter to the pickle/sour cream mix. The butter should clump up.
Then add the wet to the dry and mix until it is just incorporated – do not over mix! Then put clumps of dough on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 475 for 8-10 minutes. I got 5 biscuits out of this recipe.
We had them with kielbasa, peppers and onions – quite tasty if I do say so myself.
Rock on! \m/
