TWD: Sweet cream biscuits


I think this week's recipe was even quicker than last week's, which was a good thing, because I've been working more than usual and the early mornings don't agree with my night owl hours.  I had these mixed, baked, photographed and eaten within 30 minutes! I made ¼ of a recipe, and ended up with 2 biscuits, which, along with some of the marmalade I made last month, made a quick, early and pretty tasty dinner. I almost always add chopped crystallized ginger to my scones/biscuits, but I forgot today. I was just about to take these out of the oven when I noticed that they looked incredibly plain, so I brushed them with a bit of cream and sprinkled them with maple sugar. Highly recommended, that step:)

This week's recipe was selected by Melissa of Love at First Bite, so click on over there for the recipe. Thanks for such a great pick! To see what the rest of the TWD bakers have made, this is the place to be. I bet there are some much more creative versions out there.

Oooh maple sugar. Forgive my ignorance is that just granulated sugar with maple syrup or have I made a major baker's faux pas? :) Btw I've been meaning to comment on your header. Love it! Is that a custom cookie cutter or photoshop magic? Either way I j'dore.
