It is hard to believe, but today's Biscuit tournament was even better than last week's!
In the savory side of the competition:
Cheddar Jalapeño (CJ): Cheddar and Jalapeno biscuit topped with cream cheese fluff and pepper jelly by Kelly Koffler
Basil & Onion (BO): Basil Biscuit with Onion Jam by Kathy Houck
In the sweet side of the competition:
Cardamom Craze (CC): Cardamom steeped raisins in a spiced biscuit topped with spiced apples and honey goat cheese.
Date Night (DN): Chocolate biscuit with chocolate chips and cinnamon topped with a raspberry fluff by Sylvia Pinegar.
Here is what you thought of the biscuits:
We asked for your comments and they were great! ( I will use the initials of the biscuits that are being commented on)
DN: Chocolate biscuits are so much stinkin' fun
The Savory Category was a life altering experience. I wish I could vote for both but since I can't... BO gets my vote! The sweet caramelized onions perfectly complement the fresh basil baked into every bite.
CC tastes like breakfast with a 'B'.
CJ: Pepper Jelly in my Belly! Cheese & Japs are two things you can't go wrong with!
BO: Would be perfect with a piece of deer meat!
CC: Raisins are the light of my life!
CJ: I really loved both, but a pepper jelly is my jam (no pun intended).
Holy Cow! That BO biscuit is fine! It is tasty and decadent with a fine layer of sophistication!
Great deep deep chocolate found in DN...and that pink fluff, though!!!
DN: Très Magnifique!
CC: This is a very unfair thing to do to a person-- Make them decide between world class biscuits. But any time sweet apples come into play, I am coerced by their gravitas, and then there is cardamom... (Mind Blown) [hand drawn picture of smiley face with mind blown should also be noted]
CJ: The Pepper Jelly was the perfect accoutrement to the cheddar jalapeño which could have seemed mediocre without it!
And the winners of this round are:
Cheddar Jalapeño by Sam Kelly Koffler!
Cardamom Craze by Ali Leggett!
Good job to all of y'all! These were wonderful entries! This was another close race! Sylvia Pinegar and Kathy Houck, your biscuits will be seen on the Greenhouse menu again! They were up our alley!
