Biscuits are the quintessential farmhouse food, next to maybe a loaf of fresh baked bread. They are the perfect quick food for a slower life style. Faster than baking bread, yet just as hearty.
Today we are sharing with you our basic sprouted wheat biscuit recipe. One we often throw together when we have been working out in the garden or when we have been busy in the tea studio. But this ain't any ole' biscuit recipe now.
These biscuits are made with sprouted whole wheat. Why sprout the wheat you ask?
As I sit here typing this the rain is coming down. In droves..... and droves.... and droves. While it's not cold and there isn't any snow, the rain just sucks the heat out of the house and makes it dark and dreary inside.
Thank goodness for the crackling of a wood stove to heat our outsides. When it comes to lunch though our insides could use some warming up as well. With soup season hear it's also time for savory scones at lunch. Are you eating gluten free? Maybe you have company coming who can't eat gluten? No worries, these scones are great even for this who are on a gluten free diet (or even if your not!).
Ahh, light and fluffy, with fresh rosemary and savory cheeses! These Rosemary Gruyere Savory Scones are the perfect addition to your afternoon luncheon or tea. Served with a crustless spinach quiche and the perfect cuppa earl grey or English breakfast tea and you are set for a satisfying meal.
These scones come together quickly and are easily made in a pinch when you find out company is coming over or when you realize there isn't anything to serve with your tea. But the question begs to be answered. What is the difference between a scone and a biscuit?
Some may say that a scone is a sophisticated baked good. While I agree that their delicate and refined nature might suggest sophistication, they really are not that hard to bake. Scones take many different faces from a drop scone, to a fine cut wedge, to a rustic round shape. One thing is for sure though, there is no other baked good that pairs better with tea than a scone.
From gluten and sugar free scones, to the ancient but healthy einkorn and those for every season such as sweet potato and forsythia. These five scone recipes are sure to meet your tea time needs and hit the spot. Spot of tea eh?
