These biscuits are a must have for all of our family gatherings. Â This recipe came from my grandma on my dad’s side. Â She used to make them for us until she moved to AZ (lucky her) many, many years ago. Â Then my mom made them for a while, and now I make them. Â My mom always says “you’re bringing the biscuits, right?” Â before all the holidays. Â These are the biscuits she’s talking about.
You only need 5 ingredients:
- 2 Cups Flour
- 4 Teaspoons baking powder
- 6 Tablespoons crisco (I like the butter flavor, but you can use unflavored)
- 1 Teaspoon salt
- 1/2 to 2/3 Cups of Milk
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Â In a large bowl, stand mixer, or food processor, mix your dry ingredients. Â Then add the crisco, and 1/2 cup of milk. Â Mix until it is all combined, but don’t overmix, or your biscuits will not be flaky. Â If you need extra milk, add a little more milk. Â (Tip: Â If you add in too much milk, add a little flour until you have the right consistency).
Press out your dough and cut out your biscuits with biscuit cutters. Â If you don’t have biscuit cutters, the open end of a mug works great too! Â Place on ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for 12-15 minutes.
See how they fluff up? Â Â I split mine apart and spread butter on them. Â They will be flaky and delicious! Â Enjoy 🙂
Tip: Â These freeze very well! Â Just form your uncooked biscuits from the dough, and place in an airtight bag in the freezer for a couple of months. Â Just pop them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes at 425 degrees when you want them!
I received a Ninja 3-in-1 cooker for Christmas from my parents, so I’m going hog wild trying out a bunch of new recipes 🙂
Now, I will tell you right now that I HATE apple pie. I just don’t like it. But baked apples? Now that’s an entirely different story!
Here’s my recipe for the most incredible baked apples that are so easy to make, and you can make them in your slow cooker!
You will need:
- 4-6 apples
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
Now, you can use any apple you like, but I prefer a more sweet & tart apple, so I used Honey Crisps. I don’t like dry tasting apples, like Red Delicious, but you use whatever kind of apple you like.
First step is to core out the apple, but don’t cut all the way through to the bottom. Peel about a 1/2″ ring around the top of the apple. This will keep your apple from cracking while baking. Place them in your slow cooker.
Mix the brown sugar and oats, and stuff your apples with the mixture. Stuff them good!
Add a pat of butter on top of each apple. If you have extra filling left over, sprinkle it on top of the butter.
Cook in your slow cooker on HIGH heat for about 3 hours, or until the apples are very soft, almost mushy. (That’s how I like them anyways).
When you place them on your plate (or bowl, is what I used), pour a little of the drizzle from the bottom of the slow cooker over the apple. You can top with vanilla ice cream, caramel, or reddi-whip, or eat them just as they are. I think they are perfect just as they are. These are INCREDIBLE!! And so easy! I have to say, this just may be my new favorite dessert!
My mom made these for Easter, and they came out delicious!Â This is the best way to make sweet potatoes or yams!
- Lightly coat the bottom of your cooking sheet with olive oil. Â (I suggest lining with aluminum foil for easier cleanup)
- Slice your sweet potatoes (about 1/2″ thick), and place on cooking sheet.
- Sprinkle salt on the pototes.
- Bake at 375Âº for about 20 minutes, then flip over and then raise the heat to 400Âº and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
These become slightly crunch on top and are soft and creamy inside.Â They are so delicious!Â These are my new favorite way to eat sweet potatoes (or yams).Â I will never bake them whole again!
