Picture Books for Kepler and . . . MAPLE PECAN BISCUITS


Kepler loved "Thump, Thump" last summer (he was 2 yrs, 3 months).

this visit:
I get to make a lot of noise as a one-woman band!


Bryan and I joined forces last night to wail like the wind and crash like thunder.  As soon as we finished, Kepler insisted on a repeat performance.


                          And this is Fun Scary . . . the best of the bunch . . .


                                               Except for this one !

Kepler has been asking Nicole to read it at bedtime for over a year!

                                                             ***************

And for snack time:



 MAPLE PECAN BISCUITS   

                1/3 cup pecans, finely chopped  (so kids won’t pick them out)
       2 cups flour
                2 ½ tsp baking powder
                ¼ tsp salt

                1/2 cup soft butter
                ¼ cup maple syrup
               ¾  cup milk
                 
1.     Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2.     Grease a baking sheet.
3.     Mix pecans, flour, baking powder, and salt in food processor.
4.     Add butter and process to fine crumbs.
5.     Turn flour mixture into a mixing bowl.
6.     Stir milk and maple syrup into flour, stirring only long enough to combine.
(The secret to tender biscuits is minimum handling.)
8.     Drop about 6 to 8 large spoonfuls onto baking sheet.

9.     Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.


"Mmm," says Kepler.

P.S.  The VERY best way to have a biscuit after it has cooled is to TOAST it.
Yep, just cut it in half, pop it in your toaster, and then butter it.  It's even better than fresh out of the oven!
