The rest of the crew pitched in with appetizers, mashed potatoes, vegetable, banana bread and liquor - decidedly a lot of the latter!
And I showed up with nothing less than Newfoundland biscuits. Food makes up a lot of our sensory memories when it comes to childhood, and I have, lamentably, never had too many of my Mom's recipes around to experiment with.
However, I was in Canada in October, and came across an old cookbook with a few gems in it - including, light, fluffy, slightly sweet and memory-laden Newfoundland biscuits. I highly recommend you all try these out and report back - for the celiac among you you might try a potato flour, while the vegan are well out of my area of expertise but I know you have tricks up your sleeves.
So with no further ado (cause, as you know by now, there is always "ado" on this page):
- 3 cups flour
- 1 cup margarine
- 1 egg (in measuring cup - fill to 1 cup with milk)
- 5 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup white sugar
Enjoy the biscuits and leave me comments with your review.
Thank you a million for your hospitality Kristie!
