This week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Dorie's Maple Cornmeal Biscuits, chosen by Lindsay of A Little Something ... Sweet. Now, I had a moment of cultural confusion with these, because I read "biscuit", which in my head means "cookie". Accordingly, I made these quite small, and was puzzled when they didn't spread in the oven and tasted rather plain. Then the penny dropped - an American "biscuit" is a close relative of our scones. This made the recipe less disappointing once I'd worked this out.
This also explains why I ended up with around 20 biscuits to Dorie's twelve. For my sins, because I took these to work, I had to slice and put rosella jam and cream into 20 mini biscuits. Aye carumba! However, they were delish and cute and they all got eaten - which is a massive plus.
Lindsay will have the recipe for these scones - err, biscuits. To see what everyone else thought of these biscuits, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.
