heart shaped biscuits

We eat homemade biscuits often enough that I don’t have to pull out a recipe for it because it is memorized.  Often when Paul asks how long some food preparation will take me, I’m never quite sure.  This is one thing I at least have nailed down.  I know I can put a simple breakfast of scrambled eggs and homemade biscuits on the table in thirty minutes.

Our homemade biscuits are always heart shaped, because why would I make them any other way?  Homemade biscuits have to be cut out, and it is as easy to use a heart shaped cutter as it is to use a plain old circle.  Heat shaped tastes better too, Paul confirms this.  The only exception is if we are having some other special themed occasion, I may make biscuits in a shape to match the theme.

I have used both lard and butter to make these.  My experience is that when butter is used, it takes a bit more milk than when using lard, just a tad above ¾ cup.  Roll them out about ½ an inch thick or so.  I cut out four heart biscuits then roll up the dough again to get two more, so it makes a total of six.

We enjoy eating them with honey, apple butter, or a pile of homemade applesauce.
