Heart Biscuits

My Husband is a Midwest boy. Through & through. I'd always heard of biscuits & gravy, but it was never really a thing I considered eating. Like liver & onions- it exists, but no thanks.

The Husband was having none of my biscuit & gravy unwillingness. After my cousin Laura made us a batch, I enjoyed it quite a bit! Especially with HOT SAUCE. YASSS.

But see, I consider it a dinner food. This gives Husband conniptions. So every once in a while, (like around Father's Day) I relent. 

This is a good, easy enough recipe, and if you have a large heart cutter, all the better. (But I'll just have butter & jam on mine, thank you very much) 

2 1/4 c flour
1 tbl baking powder
2 tea salt
1 tbl sugar
1/3 c butter, chilled & cubed
1 c milk (or buttermilk if you have it)
2 tbl melted butter 

Preheat oven to 425. Stir together dry ingredients. Using a fork, mash together the butter until it looks like a course meal- consistency. 

Slowly pour in the milk. Dough should be a bit sticky, if overly sticky to handle, add some flour. Knead dough on a highly floured surface until smooth- a handful of times. Roll dough to 1 in. thickness, then cut with a cutter or drinking glass rim. 

Place in a parchment lined sheet & bake for 10-12 mins. Brush w/ melted butter.
