Onion Biscuits

It’s Friday again…this week sure flew by!  I have a backlog of recipes to share with you, but just haven’t found the time to do it.  Hopefully soon!

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe is a tasty little treat called “Saint-Germain-Des-Pres Onion Biscuits”.  It is essentially a basic biscuit recipe with the inspired addition of finely chopped onion sauteed in a little butter.

These little biscuits are wonderful!  The inside is soft and flaky and the outside has the perfect amount of crispness.  Just like a biscuit should be.  The onion adds a wonderful flavor that elevates the biscuits from basic to elegant.

I used a 1½ inch biscuit cutter as recommended in the recipe.  The resulting little biscuits are perfect for appetizers or a party, but next time I make these (and there will be a next time!) I will cut a larger size.  I generally serve biscuits with dinner and prefer the larger size.

You can't have biscuits without butter!

I appreciate that Dorie gives instructions for freezing the biscuit dough.  Very handy information since biscuits really are best right from the oven.  I cooked a few for dinner and froze the rest to enjoy later!

If you are interested in trying “Saint-Germain-Des-Pres Onion Biscuits” and don’t have a copy of Around My French Table yet (why not?), I found the recipe on Amazon:  check it out.
