Strawberry Almond Biscuits- Not So Perfect Life

One of the things that I wanted to learn to make in my second year of this blog was biscuits. Me making biscuits is sort of an inside joke in my family. In college one Thanksgiving my mom decided that she wasn’t going to make her traditional homemade rolls so I decided I was going to make biscuits. The end result was not to good, they were hard as a rock and dry. Where did Martha Stewart’s buttermilk biscuit recipe go wrong? I have no idea, but I’ve never been able to live down the fact that I served awful biscuits Thanksgiving day.

Fast forward to 2013 and … Strawberry Almond Biscuits!

Strawberry Almond Biscuits- Not So Perfect Life

Fluffy delicious biscuits. Fresh summer strawberries, almond milk pulp and my favorite emulsions (butter AND almond!). If you don’t have any spare almond milk pulp lying around you can skip it just add a 1/2 teaspoon more of almond emulsion. I used the leftover pulp from my strawberry almond milk, it really hit the spot. Remember the pulp can be frozen to be used later!

If you don’t own butter or almond emulsion please do yourself a favor and get it! The smell and taste of this fresh baked bread is definitely enhanced with the emulsion flavors.

The best part about this recipe is that it is insanely easy. Almost too easy, it makes baking fresh biscuits a possible daily activity. 10 minutes of prep time… that is it!

The baking powder is the key ingredient in this baking magic. Just look at the way the dough bakes up.

These biscuits are light, sweet, fluffy and will make your kitchen smell like a bakery. You can also make these and freeze them before you bake them so that way you always have fresh biscuits to bake any day. I would store them in individual ziplock bags… Fancy smancy frozen breakfast!

I’m going to have to make these again this weekend!

Tell me about a baking fail you have had. Have you had success going back and re-doing it?

  4. Yay for another Earth Balance lover! I’ve thought about using it to make croissants and biscuits but I never got around to it. These look seriously awesome- I wish I had one for a post breakfast snack right now!

  5. While it’s tough to actually admit to my baking short comings–especially when I’m a type A perfectictionist–my one baking fail that I’ll likely never forget is related to when I was baking a cake (for one of my family members, nonetheless). I didn’t let cake the cool enough before putting icing on….so it collapsed, and the icing dripped off everywhere. Fortunately, I had enough time to recover from my mistake and bake a new one just in time! (Is there a support group for this sort of thing? lol….)

      Yea its pefectly fine to freeze. The strawberry pulp will go bad faster than regular almond milk pulp so freeze it quick. You can freeze it in ice cub trays then transfer it to plastic freezer bags. Just thaw it when you need it.

  8. These biscuits look phenomenal! I love how you added strawberries and almonds. :)

  9. I think these just may be the prettiest muffins ever!

  10. Those look so perfect! And, since the Thanksgiving incident…I’m sure you have perfected every biscuit recipe! You’re a pro. You must be like me…if it turns out wrong, I keep making it and learning so it will be perfect. Brownies took me six months before I could get the right texture and everything that I wanted! (=
