This recipe is a hybrid of biscuits and rolls.

Prickly Pear

Serves/Makes:1 dozen depending on size cut

  • 4 cups (950 ml) sifted flour
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt (I use sea salt)
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) baking powder
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp (7 ml) granulated yeast
  • 1-1/3 cups (325 ml) milk
  • Mix dry ingredients, then cut in butter--should resemble coarse meal.
  • Add milk.
  • Knead by machine 30 to 60 seconds (or by hand 1 to 2 minutes).
  • Roll to 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick, cut out, place on 9x13" pan or jelly roll pan (11x15")sprayed with PAM.
  • Let rise in warm place until almost doubled in bulk.
  • Bake at 425 degrees (225 C.) for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden.
I have always loved making biscuits and rolls, but the biscuits weren't light enough to suit my taste and rolls take more time. Therefore I came up with the above recipe. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
