Easy Sour Cream Biscuits for Two

I love biscuits for breakfast but most of the time I don’t feel like going to the trouble of cutting in butter, and rolling out and cutting the dough, especially before coffee!  I just want a hassle free breakfast. These biscuits are light, tender and buttery with a nice tang from the sour cream and a golden-brown exterior.  I like that they make such a small batch and that’s another reason I want a simple recipe.  It just doesn’t seem worth it to go to a lot of trouble for 4 biscuits.  I need a recipe that’s quick and easy and this one is just that!  Just stir, scoop, and bake!  

Go ahead and adjust your oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  

Whisk all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.

Using a quarter cup spring-loaded ice cream scoop, or a greased 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop out and drop the dough onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet spacing them out about 2 inches apart.  Brush them with the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons melted butter and bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes.  Rotate the baking sheet halfway through baking.  Let the biscuits cool for 10 minutes.

Blueberry Muffins for Two

When I wake up on a Saturday morning and I want just want something quick and easy these blueberry muffins are great!  They are loaded with sweet juicy blueberries and the hint of lemon zest adds just the right amount of tartness.  This recipe only makes 4 muffins, two for each of you and you’ll want two; one just won’t cut it!  I could have had all four but we’re supposed to be practicing a little restraint here.  I mean that’s what this site is all about!  Portion control for two! Plus, it’s not nice to not share.  🙂  

Blueberries

Blueberries are one of those fruits you can get at the grocery store when they aren’t in season and they still taste really good.

Blend the dry ingredients together in a bowl and whisk the wet ingredients, (yogurt, egg, and lemon zest) until smooth in another bowl.  After mixing both together gently fold in the blueberries and coconut oil, or butter if you prefer.
