Yogurt Biscuits

For dinner the other day, I made delicious Herbed Lamb Chops with Pureed Cannellini Beans. I love biscuits and breads, along with my meals, so I decided to try a Yogurt Biscuit, adapted from my new favorite recipe book. The other day, I was sitting at home, when all of a sudden, the doorbell rang. My good friends (The Keuper Family) sent me the most awesome cookbooks! One was all about different types of breads and the other was a very good reference book called: How To Cook Everything. I LOVE this book. Betty Crocker’s Cookbook had always been my staple source for how-to’s and cooking inspiration. I had been using this book since I first started cooking (My mother had an older edition and now I have my own). Now I have two wonderful resources of inspiration. What I love about this new book, is that it has so many different recipes. Many from around the world to tried and true familiar recipes, often with twists. This biscuit recipe, is a simple twist of a buttermilk biscuit. I don’t often have buttermilk in the house, unless a recipe specifically calls for it. But I do have yogurt. Thank you Keupers for the wonderful books!!
