This year for my daughter’s seventh birthday she asked for cooking stuff. She wanted to learn to cook just like me. That warms my heart. I really enjoy cooking and baking with my children. Even though I’m often left with a mess of flour to clean up, we’ve got something tasty to eat and memories to forever cherish.

Instead of going out to fight the crowds on Black Friday, yesterday the kids and I had a creative day. We spent our day making arts and crafts and baking these Simple Heart Shaped Biscuits. My daughter, Kailey, received a cookbook for her birthday called “Cooking Class” by Deanna F. Cook. It features simple recipes and how-to’s for little aspiring chefs.  With a little guidance, Kailey has enjoyed cooking many recipes from her first cookbook.

So far, her favorite recipe is the biscuits. This is the second time we’ve made them and this time around she almost did it on her own. She said next time she only needs my help to put them in the oven. Her cookbook features easy to follow steps with pictures so she knows if she’s making the recipe right. Plus, she’s helped me in the kitchen a lot and she’s watched me knead all types of dough. It was wonderful to watch her knead, form the dough and cut out the biscuits all on her own. I couldn’t have been more proud.

I highly suggest making these biscuits with your little ones or on your own if you’re looking for a simple biscuit recipe that’s quick and easy. Plus, they taste much better than store bought and you know all the ingredients, so no preservatives. The recipe makes 10-12 small biscuits so if you’re really hungry or feeding a crowd, I’d suggest doubling the recipe.  Also, we used a small heart shaped cookie cutter, but you can use whatever shape you want. That’s another fun thing about making biscuits, you can make them whatever shape you like.

While the original recipe doesn’t call for brushing the biscuits with milk before baking, I highly suggest it. The milk encourages browning, so if you brush a little milk on top, your biscuits will have a nice golden brown top.

These biscuits are delish right out of the oven. Just cut them in half and add a little butter and maybe your favorite jam for a little snack. Or you can serve them alongside breakfast or dinner, make them into little breakfast sliders with a little egg, cheese and bacon, or top them with some homemade Southern style sausage gravy. How I love biscuits and gravy! With all the yummy options, it’s hard to decide, you’ll just have to make these biscuits more than once.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the butter and use a pastry cutter or fork to combine the flour and butter until the butter is incorporated throughout the flour. The mixture should look crumbly.
  4. Pour in the milk and use a wooden spoon to stir until it’s too difficult to stir. The batter should be combined but sticky. If it is still crumbly add 1 tablespoon milk.
  5. Dust the counter with flour and dip your hands in as well. Since the dough is sticky, the flour prevents it from staying on your hands. Put the ball of dough on the counter and knead until the ball feels smooth and slightly springy. To knead, fold the dough in half and press down with your palms. Turn the dough and repeat the process.
  6. Shape the dough into a large flat circle, about a ½ inch thick.
  7. Dip a cookie cutter or biscuit cutter into flour and cut out the biscuits. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Gather the dough scrapes into a ball and repeat the steps.
  9. Brush milk on top of your biscuits, this way they will have a nice browned color.
  10. Bake 10-12 minutes, until nicely browned.
  11. Serve with your favorite toppings.
