Both of these recipes intimidated me at first. Biscuits are terrifying to me, and always have been--I am a chronic dough-over-mixer and in case you don't know, that is not a good thing.
And phyllo dough is kind of scary...it tears really easily, you have to thaw it in the fridge for a while because it usually comes frozen, you have to keep it moist and brush it with melted butter...it's kind of involved!
Anyway, apparently I was feeling ambitious; here are the results:
Here's the filling for the pockets:
I had some leftover & just ate it plain as a side dish--very tasty.
The biscuits were a bit of a different outcome, but not a total fail:
|pre-baking...I was pretty psyched for how they looked right here!|
Surprise--I over-mixed the biscuit dough. The biscuits were a little tough and very flat. Not unlike hockey pucks. But my kids & ate them just the same! I mean anything's edible with some butter (vegan butter for me!) and cinnamon and sugar, right?
My favorite part of the Thug Kitchen biscuit recipe? This line: "Make your own biscuits because that store-bought shit is shady as hell. Food shouldn't be packaged like a stick on explosives. That shit is unnatural."
