What’s Cooking with Melissa?

Since Mother’s Day is coming up, I thought I’d search for a recipe that would be easy for children to help with. The recipe I’d like to share is great for breakfast or dessert. I revised a recipe that I found online at twopeasandtheirpod.com for Nutella Drop Biscuits and they turned out great!

Nutella Drop Biscuits by Two Peas & Their Pod

2 1/4 cups flour

2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. sugar

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

6 tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup Nutella

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt. Mix with fingers or pastry cutter until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add buttermilk and stir until combined. Spoon Nutella over biscuit dough and cut through with a knife to swirl Nutella throughout the dough. Drop mixture onto parchment paper to make biscuits. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven and cool. Serve with breakfast or as a dessert with berries and whipped cream. Makes about 12 biscuits.

*My changes to make a delicious gluten free version:

– 2 cups Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1 to 1 flour.

– Buttermilk substitute-1 tbsp. lemon juice plus regular milk to make 1 cup.

– Nutella substitute-Reese’s spreads peanut butter chocolate.

– Salt substitute-1/4 tsp. pink Himalayan Salt.

Enjoy and Happy Mother’s Day!
