All of a sudden I was hearing cowbells. No moooo. None at all.
It had to be one of the chimes on the other side of the backyard. I looked over to see what may be swaying in the wind.
The Husband stood outside the patio door, clanging on the triangle. "Come and get it," he called. "Coffee and pancakes."
We've had some tasty breakfasts the last several mornings because, one, we finally went to the grocery store and, two, we were without peanut butter, our breakfast staple. The other day I made strawberry brie biscuits, which looked more like scones. Biscuits or scones, they were delicious. You can't go wrong with brie or strawberries. We happened to have frozen organic strawberries from last summer. Very flavorful, they were.
My concoction began with a mixture of 2 cups of flour and about 1 teaspoon of baking powder and a couple of dashes of baking soda. (I added the latter because I ran out of the former.) To that, I cut in 1 tablespoon or so of salted butter, then mixed in about 1.5 ounces, more or less, of diced brie and about 1 cup of diced strawberry with sufficient ice water for everything to come together to form a dough. That, I scooped into 8 or 9 mounds which I plopped onto a parchment-paper-covered frying pan and baked at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. The mounds melted into each other so we cut them into wedges. What a treat!
Brie pancakes, with or without the strawberries. What do you think?
