11/21/13 ChefElla's Sage "Dressing" Biscuits


With Thanksgiving coming up I know that everyone wants to make something special.  But making something special can be hard.  Not all of us cook special things everyday and so it makes us nervous when a special event comes up.  Lucky for you and me I have a special recipe.  Everyone will think that you really worked hard on these biscuits, but we will know that they just look that way.  These biscuits taste just like the dressing you serve with your turkey.  The fun part is that if you make enough biscuits to have leftovers after Thanksgiving, you can use them to make turkey biscuit sandwiches the next day.

For this recipe you will need to use the oven.  If you are not allowed to use the oven by yourself you can have a grown up help.
1. Wash your hands.
2. For this recipe you will need measuring spoons and cups, a fork, a 2 inch round cutter, a knife, a cutting board, a large mixing bowl and small mixing bowl, cookie sheet and a whisk.

ChefElla's Sage "Dressing" Biscuits (This recipe will make 10-12 biscuits)
2 Cups.         All Purpose Flour
2 1/2 tsp       Baking Powder
2 tsp             Sugar
1 1/4 tsp       Poultry Seasoning     
1 Tbl.            Celery Salt
2 tsp             Dried Parsley
1 tsp             Onion Powder
1/8 tsp         Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp          Black Pepper
1 tsp             Boullion Base, Turkey, Chicken, or Poultry Flavor
                      -I chose base over powder because I do not like to use products with MSG, and dried
                       boullion usually has MSG in it.
1 3/4 Cups.   Heavy Cream

3. Pre-heat your oven to 425F.
4. In your large mixing bowl add all of your ingredients except the Base and Heavy Cream.
5. Whisk slowly to blend all of the ingredients.
6. In your small bowl whisk your heavy cream and bouillon.
7. Make a well in the bottom of your flour mixture and pour in your liquid mixture.
8. Blend the mixture slowly with a fork until it turns into a ball and all of the flour is incorporated.  The
    mixture will look a little wet.
9. First clean and dry your countertop.  Dust countertop with flour.  Put biscuit mix on the flour.  Kneed
    the mixture one to two times and then flatten out into a 1 inch disc.  If the mixture sticks you can
    spread a little more flour.
10. Cut out out 2 inch rounds.  Spray cookie sheet with pan spray.  Place biscuits on your cookie sheet.
11. Take remaining dough and form into a disc again.  Cut out more biscuits.  Continue this process
      until all of the dough is gone.
      -Note: If you want to use a different shape cutter you can, but it might change the cooking time if
       the biscuits are larger or smaller.
12. Bake biscuit for 10 -12 minutes or until they just look golden on top.

Serve warm with butter.  The day after Thanksgiving break biscuits in half and top with your favorite sandwich ingredients.
