3 Ingredient Biscuits
When I was a kid, my dad used to bake these amazing biscuits on the weekends and he would call them cat head biscuits. For the longest time, I thought he had just made up the name and the recipe himself–he never told me otherwise. It wasn't until recently that I learned that cat head biscuits were, in fact, an actual recipe.
These are the easiest and tastiest biscuits, perfect for lazy mornings!
Part of the appeal with these biscuits is that they're so thick, buttery, and flaky due to the little pieces of butter will be cut up into the dough, similar to croissants, but without the labor-intensive process. They're also delicious with a myriad of toppings such as:
- Butter (a classic)
- A drizzle of honey
They're also really delicious to make sandwiches with, but they are messy because they're meant to be flaky and the loosely combined dough makes for a crumbly biscuit. When I make a sandwich, I usually have to eat it with a fork and a knife because it's so messy (but delicious). Grab your mixing bowl and get ready to make a mess with flour!
Can you guess why they're called cat head biscuits? The lumpy and asymmetrical tops closely resemble - you guessed it! - a cat's head.
