Toaster Oven Biscuits for Two

Toaster Oven Biscuits For Two, a simple 3-ingredient recipe for light and fluffy toaster oven baked biscuits.

A few months back I was listening to Real Simple’s “Things Cooks Know” podcast when Sarah Karnasiewicz (the cook) dropped a crazy easy biscuit recipe.  How easy you ask?  3 simple ingredients easy!

Immediately, I knew you guys would enjoy a tiny 3-ingredient biscuit recipe for your toaster ovens.  But the original recipe calls for all-purpose flour and heavy cream.  Both of which I didn’t have on hand.  

We rarely have heavy cream in our fridge (like most people I assume).  Though there is always a cold bottle of half & half for coffee…always 🙂  I figured there was no harm in trying to substitute it for the cream.

Next looking over the flours in our freezer (the best place to store your whole grain flours) – I was worried spelt or whole wheat flour might be too heavy.  So I settled on whole wheat pastry flour instead.

Now all that was left to do was turn a six serving recipe into a small batch of Toaster Oven Biscuits for Two.

Toaster Oven Biscuits for Two (Step By Step):

Preheat your toaster oven to 425ºF, find an ungreased cookie sheet and gather your ingredients.  In a small bowl (my cereal bowl will be playing this part) stir together the flour and baking powder.

Create a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour the half & half into the well.

Stir the ingredients together until a light dough forms.  Like with these Strawberry Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Bars try not to over mix.  The dough comes together very quickly and over mixing will kill its light airiness and affect the biscuits final texture.

Divide the dough into two even pieces.  Place one piece on a lightly floured cutting board, sprinkle with a tiny bit of flour.  Gently roll the dough into a ball and lightly pat into a small 2.5-inch circle.
