Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Scallion Biscuits

These light buttery biscuits are one of our most popular biscuit/roll recipes. They are nice with butter or gravy, but I like them best to make ham and cheese sandwiches.

3/4 cup butter, divided
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk, divided

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Sauté the scallions in 3 tablespoons butter until they are soft. Set the scallions aside and let cool. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Cut 1/2 cup butter into small pieces and cut it into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center, and add the scallions and the 3/4 cup buttermilk. Mix until a very sticky dough just holds together. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 20 times. Pat out until 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a 2 inch cutter. Place biscuits on a baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and mix with the buttermilk. Brush the butter-buttermilk mixture on the biscuits. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

Makes 12 biscuits.
