Saint-Germain-Des-Pres Biscuits


Time for French Fridays with Dorie! Our recipe today is Saint-Germain-Des-Pres Onion Biscuits, I am not an onion fan so left off the onions, cut me a little slack, please, I did make the Cheese Topped Onion Soup a couple of weeks ago :)


These were a pretty simple and straight forward biscuit. I went "rustic" and cut my patted down biscuit dough with a pizza cutter and separated them on the baking sheet.



Here they are, tall and puffy after baking. I got 12 biscuits from this recipe and they were pretty small, that was just fine with me though. Seems like I am always making biscuits around here, usually for picky husband and his favorite dessert of strawberry shortcake. I'm sure some of these will be turned into strawberry shortcake by dinner time.


These were nice and fluffy and had a good texture and flavor. My four year old and I enjoyed them as lunch with some strawberries, Anjou pears, and absolutely yummy Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese.

Oh wow. Your pic made me go back and double check my pic of these from last year to see if my memory was correct. Yep, mine were flat as a pancake. What the heck happened? Maybe THAT'S why I didn't love them. ha!

Wow, I did not get my biscuits to fluff up that much.
Yours looks great. I wonder what I did wrong.

Beautiful lunch plate...looks yummy. I made mine smaller...for finger sandwiches. We liked the added onions...but I wouldn't like onions with your beautiful strawberries/fruit which look tasty.

What are your secrets for fluffiness please? I am a newbie to biscuits and could have stander a bit more lift.

Man those biscuits look good! Mine did not rise that much but I rolled the dough pretty thin. Love your flavor combos!

It looks like the pizza cutter made some nice sharp cuts judging by the amazing height on those biscuits!
I really like the cheese/ pear pairing.

I love the taste of these, I am definitely going to make these thicker next time.

The biscuits are beautiful in the square shape and would be perfect for little biscuit sandwiches. Great job!
