Berry Biscuit Cups

Man, it seems like forever since I've done a post about biscuit cups. Heh. But seriously, my girlfriend bought several tubes of biscuits and I have to do something with them. And don't let it be said I never do what I say I'm going to. I filled them with fruit this time, just like I said I would in my post last week. And it was wicked good. So, here is the post I have that tells you exactly how to make the cups, just ignore the egg and bacon... well, no, don't ignore them. Make them too, they're wicked good.

You could even make both of them at the same time. Then your meal would have all the major food groups: grain, bacon, butter, sugar... er, eggs... Hm. Anyway, the fruit cups.

First off, I macerated some chopped strawberries and blackberries. I'm not sure how much sugar I put in I'm afraid, probably ~1 tablespoon, plus a drop of vanilla. I let that sit for a couple hours. Then I made the cups, filled them up with fruit, a little of the macerating liquid and dropped a tiny bit of butter on each one. Because I can. Then I baked them. And we ate them. And they were awesome. Especially with a little whipped cream. We wound up just putting it on top, it's really the most efficient way to do it. Ok, I promise now, no more biscuit cups. Until I do the peanut butter and chocolate ones.

It's been a while since I've made biscuits too. Looks really good with the fruit and whipped cream. I love the first photo, too. Nice!

What a great way to use up the biscuit dough.. gorgeous fruit and whipped cream, delicious treat!

Joanne said...

You can post as many biscuit cup recipes as you like. And I will continue to be very happy. Especially if they are stuffed with berries. Really especially if they are stuffed with peanut butter and chocolate. No you really need to post those.

Dawn said...

biscuit batter, yeah how clever to shape them that way.

they look so pretty... might consider putting just a bit of marmalade as a glaze before baking, no need for the whipped cream!

Hungry Dog said...

These sound delicious, kind of like little berry shorbreads. Yum.

Looking forward to the PB & chocolate biscuit cups too!

Goldie said...

Needs more whipped cream! (LOL!)

Very nice photography. I thought you said Santa didn't bring you a new camera...? Or are you taking art classes?

Anyway, they look lovely. Extra bonus that they are pretty AND edible!

Thanks kids!

Joanne: Oh I plan to. I just have to figure out what to do first. Heh.

Year on the Grill: I'll try that next time, sounds good.

Goldie: Heh, thanks, but neither. I think I'm just getting used to using GIMP.

Nothing beats biscuit cups with whipped cream!! I think I these served sweet vs savoury like the ones you did before.
