Last week it was my turn to bring breakfast into the office. I wanted to do something a little special, different than the usual bagels/donuts and with a Valentine’s Day twist. So, I decided to do biscuits and sausage gravy. As you can see, I decided to use a heart-shaped cutter on the biscuits. I thought they were adorable! And, of course, they are so tasty!
Recipe from Chef Alex (one of the chef instructors at my culinary school) – hence why this recipe is in grams instead of cups. Get your scales ready!
255g. Bread flour
213g. Cake flour
21g. Baking powder
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Keep all ingredients as cold as possible. Mix dry ingredients – preferably by hand.
Cut butter into small cubes and cut into the dry ingredients.
Add buttermilk and mix until shaggy. Cover and rest for 20 minutes.
Roll out on floured surface. Fold over itself twice and roll out again. Cut with biscuit cutter or cookie cutter of choice. Place on sheet pan (with sides of biscuits touching) and bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown.
Paint with melted butter after removing from the oven, if you wish.
