Pink Breakfast!

June 23, 2010

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals.  Creamie’s too.  We could eat breakfast food pretty much any time of day or night.  I love to make pancakes and waffles and play around with my recipes.  I figure if it doesn’t turn out the way I had planned, then I still have two more meals to get it right.

I don’t usually like grapefruit, even if it is pink.  Once I had some fresh from a tree and it was nearly the greatest thing I’ve ever ever tasted.  But there is hope, even for grocery store grapefruit.  My mom used to sprinkle it with a little salt, but I have a MUCH better plan.  Sprinkle your grocery store grapefruit with brown sugar and put it under the broiler until it gets all warm and carmelized.  Then devour.  But today is not a day for grapefruit.

Today is a day for heart shaped biscuits and strawberry yogurt (that looks like ice cream!)

Pink Biscuits

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 TB baking powder
  • 1/2 tea salt
  • 1 TB sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening or butter
  • 3/4 cup milk OR 1 cup buttermilk
  • pink food coloring

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.  Cut in the shortening/butter until it looks like coarse crumbs.  Mix a few drops of pink food coloring into the milk.  Then stir in the milk lightly with a fork until the dough pulls away from the bowl.  Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 30 seconds-ish.  Roll out to 3/4 inch thick and use a cookie cutter (or the edge of a glass to make circles) to cut out.  Re-roll scraps once.  This will make 8-10 biscuits, bake on a cookie sheet or in a glass baking dish for 12-15 minutes at 450 degrees.  Remove from oven before they get golden brown.  You want these pretty light.  Enjoy!

(I made these green for St. Patricks Day.  But you could just leave them colorless, although that is considerably less fun.)
