These past few weeks I’ve been playing Guild Wars 2 on a daily basis. My friends and I have been leveling up our guild by finally doing guild missions. Two years ago when we tried a guild bounty we got destroyed by Half-Baked Komali. Everyone was afraid to do these ever again. They were worried our guild was too small to make any progress. With the announcement of Heart of Thorns, several of my friends have returned to Guild Wars 2 in full force. With our numbers sitting near ten people at time, I tossed the idea of trying guild missions again. Several people thought I was crazy for suggesting it and assumed it would be a waste of time. Finally, after a bit of persuading they were willing to try a training guild bounty. We went out and just demolished Crusader Michiele. From that day on, we have been doing weekly missions. Our guild may be tiny but we are making progress!
With all the Guild Wars 2 I’ve been playing, I’ve been looking at many of the in game food items. The food drawings in game always makes my mouth water. When browsing the different recipes the buttermilk biscuit caught my attention. I love biscuits – they are so fluffy and buttery… so delicious! They are also super easy to make and go with just about anything. But enough talking and more doing, let’s get into this recipe.
Required Equipment: bowl, baking sheet, round cookie cutter
– 2 ½ cups flour
– ½ tsp salt
– 3 ½ tsp baking powder
– 7 tbsp butter, cubed and chilled
– ¾ cup buttermilk
– 4 tbsp honey
– 1 tbsp melted butter
Preheat your oven to 400°F. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking powder. Add the cubed butter and combine with your hands until it resembles coarse cornmeal.
Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to chill. While that is chilling, combine the buttermilk and honey together. After the bowl has rested, take it out and pour the buttermilk into the bowl.
Work the dough until it has come together. Roll out the dough and then fold it into thirds like the picture above. Roll the dough out again to ¾-1 inch thickness. Take a round cookie cutter and cut the dough into round circles.
Place the round pieces on a greased baking sheet. Brush melted butter on top of the biscuits. Place them in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.
