|Bacon Biscuits with maple Syrup|
And what biscuits they were! Golden and soft, with just a hint of smokey bacon. Maple syrup was the perfect companion.
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda1/3 cup bacon fat, scraped from the pan and hardened in the fridge
1 cup yogurt
Preheat the oven to 450F.
Mix the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Cut in the bacon fat with two knives or a pastry blender, until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the yogurt and gently form a ball of dough.
Turn the dough over onto a lightly floured board. Coat your hands with flour, and gently pat the dough into a rectangle, about three-quarters to an inch thick. Sprinkle a bit more flour underneath the dough before cutting so it will not stick to the board. Cut the biscuits into whatever shape you want. I chose two-dozen small triangles (a dozen squares, cut in half.) Place the biscuits onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 11-14 minutes, depending on the size of the biscuit.
When they are still hot, drizzle them with maple syrup. Yum!
