Oh, yea. BISCUITS!
The people over at Marie Callender’s offered me to try some of their new mixes, like the All-Purpose Biscuit Mix. And the verdict? I’m sure glad I got to try them!
First off, these were really easy preparation. All I needed was a bowl, a spoon, the mix, and 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon of water (and a pan with some non-stick spray to bake them on!).
The mix was beige and crumbly in color. After adding the water, I ended up adding just a little bit more to make it easier to stir. I noticed these sort oflumps that were there, sort of like flakes, that I had to stir a little extra to get smoother. The dough became very sticky and pasty, and sort of reminded me of the cheese in a mozzarella cheese stick how it was sort of gooey when I transferred the batter from the spoon to the pan.
Here’s what they looked like after I scooped them on the pan.
While cooking, they smelled DELICIOUS. The bottom of the mix bag says “Restaurant Style” and I thought the same from the smell- I felt like I was sitting in a restaurant!
Here’s what they looked like after baking!
So what about the taste? DELICIOUS!! Even as is, with nothing on them! Fluffy and doughy, slightly salty, and just like a biscuit should taste. The back of the bag said to “serve warm with butter, honey or preserves”, so since I was having these with my dinner, I opted for a little butter. Divine!
Overall? These get 4 1/2 stars! I love how the mix makes 8 biscuits- I think that’s perfect for a family dinner! I also love that 1 biscuit (1/4 cup dry mix) is only 100 calories! I was a little disappointed that there was no fiber per serving, but these were really good. I would certainly eat them again- I’m tempted to maybe add cinnamon and sugar if I ever make them again!
