Six down, only ten more to go. I’m moving right along on catching up with all of the past Tuesdays with Dorie selections that were completed before I became a member.
I’m almost halfway there to catching up. I adjusted my numbers because originally I had it at 17 that I had missed, but really it was only 16. I found out that one week had a choice between two similar recipes and you could choose which flavor you wanted to make. I had included both recipes in my count. Eventually I will make the second recipe that I end up not choosing. But for now, I’m not going to include it in my numbers for Blast From TWD Past posts.
I thought I had gotten through most of the seemingly easier recipes but noticed I had looked over the Pecan Sour Cream Biscuits. I already had everything on hand so I decided to just go ahead with these instead of tackling the Hidden Berry Cream Cheese Torte which was my original intention for today’s post.
I’ve never actually made biscuits at home before. I cut the recipe in half and got eight instead of six like I was supposed to. So I would say mine probably turned out a little thin. I decided to underbake them for one minute and everything turned out fine.
I really don’t care for pecans that much. Or any kind of nut for that matter, except peanuts or Brazil nuts. But the pecans in this, to me, were not really front and center stage. I liked the way these biscuits tasted plain, they were a little sweet and the pecans did give a nice texture difference. But I liked them even better with butter and homemade blackberry jam from the Dutch Market. Oh yeah.
Ashley of eat me, delicious chose the recipe for Pecan Sour Cream Biscuits for the week of February 26th, 2008. Stop by here to see Ashley’s results from back then. And check out the rest of her site while you’re there, she has beautiful photography and interesting recipes.
Hope everyone had a great July 4th! I did, I went to see the movie Hancock and went to my Dad’s house for a party. He rented a dunk tank but I would NOT get in no matter how much people asked me to. Today I’m spending the day relaxing and getting ready to go back to work tomorrow. yikes, this weekend was too short.
