I followed Palma's lead and made the infamous Cheddar, Date Biscuits, that Shannon, of Poptarticus had originally told us about, but with the changes Palma described in her blog, Palmabella's Passion, The Biscuit Experiment. While I love the taste, I'm not crazy about the "appearance." I keep thinking there should be something speckled green in the dough - like an herb or something but I can't think of anything that would go.
I froze a bunch though (unbaked) and will experiment with the reheating (i.e., do you defrost them first or bake right from the freezer, and if so, for how long) this weekend. Next, I need to figure out the WW points in each.
Blue Cheese Fig Biscuits!
1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temp
1/2 pound crumbled blue cheese
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. ground black pepper
1/2 t. salt
1/4 c. milk
1 8 oz. package dried figs (I removed the little stems)
Preheat oven to 375F. With a mixer beat together butter and cheese. Mix in flour, pepper and salt. Add milk and stir until stiff dough forms. Wrap 1 tablespoon dough around each date, completely encasing fig and forming small cylinder. Place on ungreased baking sheet (can be made ahead and refrigerated.) Bake until golden, about 15 minutes.
