I missed the last FFwD — I actually cooked salmon and lentils, and we loved it. I was damn near missing this FFwD, too. I am out of sugar, so subbed in brown sugar. I used a red onion instead of regular. I don’t have a biscuit cutter (or a PVC pipe, as Dorie suggested), so I just cut the biscuits into rectangles.
Luckily, this was a basic recipe, and throwing it together took minutes. Dorie says you can freeze the cut biscuits and bake them later, but she also says that this recipe makes 32 biscuits. Either French math is way different than mine, or I did something horribly wrong, because I got 12 with a few scraps left for Gorilla Girl to roll the dough and cut a few strips. The onions in the dough turned her off, so we didn’t get wildly creative with this one.
Joyce happened to be looking for a snack as the saint-germain-des-prés biscuits came out of the oven, and she declared them tasty; she even noticed the slight sweetness with the savory onion flavor and said it grew on her.
I liked them, too, but want more fluff and moisture in my biscuits. Perhaps my cavalier attitude while making them led to the less than amazing fluff, and slightly dry texture.
