This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is from Lindsay of A Little Something...Sweet! She picked Maple Cornmeal Biscuits for us to make. This was a great recipe for me to get back on track with TWD--quick to mix up, and quick to bake. Gillian was quite happy to help me with the mixing, too. =)
The verdict? Sadly, I didn't like these as much as I hoped to. I like cornmeal and maple syrup, but unfortunately, my biscuits turned out kind of dry and crumbly. I'm not sure why.
The only change I made was to use soured milk (milk plus vinegar) in place of the buttermilk, because I didn't have any. (Oops, never mind. That was another recipe I made over the weekend. These used regular milk.) Maybe I had too much cornmeal. Maybe I baked them too long (though it was only 14 minutes). The flavor was good, so I might play around with the recipe next time to get a better result. I'm thinking of adding an egg to get a more scone-like texture.
If you'd like to give these a try for yourself, Lindsay has the recipe. And to see how everyone else fared this week, check out the Links.
