OMG soooo yummy!!!!
Tonight for dinner I grilled some steaks, sliced them and threw them on top of a fresh green salad. For dessert I made strawberry shortcake. Normally I make a sweetened drop biscuit. This time I was just not in the mood for them. So I went looking to see if I could find any recipes for sugar cookies using dry biscuit mix. That brand in the yellow box!!!!) I found this one:
3 c biscuit mix
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/3 c water
2 t vanilla
Drop by spoonfulls and bake in a 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Flatten them with a spatula, then return to the oven for an additional 2 minutes. (for my oven 8 minutes was perfect!) Let cool on wire rack for a little bit.
These were really good, with a hint of nutty-ness from the brown sugar. Not exactly my idea of a sugar cookie, BUT these ARE my new go to's for shortcakes!
BTW Cassie is still trying to convice Darren that she needs full access to his armchair for business purposes. She really seems to be pleading her case. Although I still don't think it's gonna happen! lol
