mike and i rarely have a chance to sit and have breakfast together. one or both of us are usually in a rush out the door. we either grab a granola bar or stand at the kitchen counter scarfing down our cereal before running out the door. not good, right?! i know...

today for the first time in a very long time we had an opportunity to cook breakfast together and sit and chat...chat about what? lost of course. heehee...

we decided to make some biscuits for breakfast.

ingredients (makes about 6 biscuits):

- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 teaspoon sugar

- 1 tablespoon baking powder

- 1 teaspoon salt

- 8 tablespoon butter, cubed

- 1 cup whipping cream

preheat the oven to 375.

since we don't have a kitchen aid mixer with a paddle attachment, i put all the dry ingredients into my bread maker until it looks like corn meal.

after the dry ingredients are mixed together slowly pour in the cream until it is combined with the dry ingredients.

after the dough is ready, roll it out on a floured surface and cut out circles (i used a mug). i like to cut out two thin circles and stack them so that the biscuits come apart in the middle after they are cooked.

put the biscuits on a buttered baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes until they are golden brown.

breakfast is served!
