I love the smell of beer in the morning



First question: Why was Mamma Ducky up at 6 am on a Saturday?
Second question: Why did Mamma Ducky crack open a beer at 6:15am?
Answer to question 2, see question 1.
I'm kidding, of course.
I needed to open the beer and let it set so it could warm up.
The other day The Dude's Dad wanted one of his Mamma's old recipes so The Dude's Aunt, Fifi, dug out the extremely tattered and worn recipe book. My eyes lit up like a 50 million candle watt light (I know what that looks like cuz we totally own one....or two). I had never heard mention of such a book but was super eager to get my hands on it. They did try to keep it from me, not sure why, but I won that battle.
The first recipe in the book was for modifying boxed biscuit mix. Didn't sound too exciting, but I copied it anyway.
This morning I woke up at 6-friggen-A-M for some unknown reason. As I sat in The Dude's big comfy chair wondering what I was to do in a completely silent house this early, the biscuit recipe popped to mind.
I went to the extra fridge and pulled out a cold one and considered downing it popped it open. Poured it into the measuring cup and turned on the oven.


The results were friggen astounding!! Those were the tastiest, most tender biscuits I have ever eaten. No. Seriously. Would I lie to you? Don't answer that.


Here's what ya need:


2 1/4 cups of your preferred biscuit mix


6 oz room temp beer


1 1/2 T sugar, dissolved into beer




As I said, set the beer out while the oven preheats (preheat your oven to 450 degrees), dissolve the sugar into it. Mix the beer into the mix. If it's too sticky, add a bit more mix. Dump it out onto a flat surface for kneading and knead it a few times. Roll the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness and cut out biscuits. Lay on baking sheet, close enough that the edges touch each other. Bake for 7-10 minutes. Done and doner!
