Roasted Beet & Feta Biscuits // take a megabite

Biscuits couldn’t get much easier than heavy cream and self-rising flour… So I complicated it by roasting a beet and making them pink. I’d like to thank my new BFF,  my AC window unit, making the the whole roasting and baking thing doable.

So live your life in a world with pink biscuits and feta polka dots and cute breakfast.

P.S. Thanks to King Arthur Flour for the flour and biscuit cutter! XOXO

These are so pretty even an avowed beet hater like myself is ready to turn on my oven and get roasting! Seriously adorable. And so fluffy!

I love my A/C unit. I’ve come close to asking it to marry me in the throes of one of our long summers here in Australia.
Now, biscuit baking is a year long pleasure.
I cannot wait to make these delicious, punk pink biscuits and smash me some avocado on top 🙂

These are totally sending me over the edge, but it’s a good edge! I feel like if I like in a pink house, I need pink biscuits, right???

I love feta, but the idea of feta, in a biscuit, hot out of the oven…No, it just seems wrong to me, but that’s just my opinion. However those nice pink biscuits are just calling to me — omit the feta, add 1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar, some dried cherries or raisins, some kind of chopped nuts, and you have just made a valentine scone. Or biscuits for a little girl’s tea party.

As a side note, I’ve made this heavy cream biscuit many times. Love it, so adaptable, but I keep my dough quit soft, more like cookie dough, and I use a scoop so I don’t have to roll and cut. Saves a bit on clean up
