Hi there. Welcome back! We’re doing a weekly series that publishes every Tuesday wherein we are cooking through one of our FAVE cookbooks : Eat Happy! If you missed the intro post you can click on over here to read that.
We are starting with the very first recipe and working our way all the way through to the end. We will not be sharing with you the actual recipes that we cook. We WILL be sharing our experience during the whole process and our opinion of the outcome. So thanks for stopping by…and let’s dive in to this week’s recipe shall we?
This recipe is also made to where you can make cheese straws, which are a good ole southern tradition, but I did not have time for an extra step so I went with a good ole biscuit shape.
I hate, hate, hate grating or shredding cheese but I avoid the extra fillers in most shredded cheese if I can manage taking 5 extra minutes to do it myself. I also happened to already have block cheese and it needed to be finely shredded, so I just went for it with my hand grater.
When I got the dough ready, I was 100% convinced that it was not done correctly and I had to just roll with what I had going on. It was much wetter than anticipated. These bitches smelled AMAZING while cooking. The kids were just watching the oven, waiting for them to be ready.
When they came out, I was a little confused over how flat they were, but upon looking in a Facebook group where most of the members cook from this book, I realized that wasn’t uncommon. The most common solution seems to be to add more almond flour, which I will try next time.
And there will be a next time, like probably tomorrow… the kids woofed them down in 30 seconds and begged for more. Easy and delicious and they will make the perfect addition to a lot of our regular meals.
