There is something so beautiful about mornings. As much as I love to sleep, I love to get up early. The stillness of the air, and the pink sky ignites my soul. It really is a beautiful time of the day!
Growing up, my father made Sunday breakfast a feast. My sister and I always woke up to the smell of homemade biscuits. There really isn't anything that makes you feel more at home than nutmeg biscuits, warm honey, berry jam and a slab of cold butter. Recalling on this memory last weekend, began my journey on the perfect weekend breakfast!
I love waking up earlier than anyone in the house, throwing together some biscuits, and seeing the look on their face when the emerge from their slumber when they smell that sweet buttery scent!
My personal favorite way to eat these biscuits is with boysenberry jam shoved right into the middle, then dipped in some warm honey!
If you are more like my mom, you would slice a thick piece of cold butter and wedge it in the middle of your warm biscuit.
But, eating is a unique experience for each person and their taste buds, and all I'm really saying, is your taste buds will want to take this journey!
Breakfast Biscuits yields about 14, 3 inch round biscuits
In a food processor pulse together your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and nutmeg)
Next slice the stick of butter into chunks and blend into the flour mixture
Slowly add in the milk until the dough looks like little individual balls of dough
Remove the dough and place onto a world surface and roll the dough out to be a half inch thick
Using a cookie cutter (or free hand), cut out the circles and place on a buttered cookie sheet
- 2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 stick of cold butter
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2/3 cup buttermilk (I used sweetened vanilla almond milk)
Bake until golden brown for about 12 minutes on a 350 degree oven.
When they are cooked through, eat and serve warm! Pair with honey, jam, whipped cream, and butter. Literally they taste great anyway!!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does!
