I’m about to lay down some truth, try not to be shocked. Fat girls, like all humans, eat. I in particular like to eat all kinds of foods. I also like to experiment with recipes and make up my own. So from time to time on this blog a recipe I really like or something I’ve created will pop up. Today is one of those times.
I’ve been treating a cold/sinus infection for a while now and today I finally decided to sleep in and stay home from the office. When I did get up and about, I decided I’d like something sweet with my coffee, but I didn’t want to put a lot of effort in to it. So I threw together a simple apricot “glazed” popover, which looks and tastes way more impressive than the amount of effort that went in to it.
Your favorite Jam or Jelly
I pretty much always have a refrigerator biscuits on hand; one of my favorite kitchen tips. When they are on a good sale 3/$5 or such I purchase in bulk. They typically have a two month expiration date, so they last and make a great cold pantry item to have on hand for both sweet and savory recipes. I like the Flaky Grands variety, but any one will work really.
Cut the biscuits in to four pieces. Drop them in to a bowl.
Add jam or jelly. I had apricot, one of my favs on hand so I that’s what I used. Add as much or as little as you want. Mix together until all pieces of biscuit are coated well. If you want more than just a light glaze, you’ll add more jam/jelly. It’s really about your own taste.
Spoon four pieces in to each muffin cup. I use either a non-stick or silicone muffin pan so there is no need to grease the pan.
Bake at 350 for about 13 minutes. I let them rest for a couple of minutes while I make a cup of coffee. Then pop them out of the pan.
Unlike plain biscuits that you then apply jam to, these are better reheated because the biscuit pieces have been coated and the glaze keeps the biscuit soft.
To me, they are an ideal solution to wanting something quick and sweet with my cup of coffee.
If you try them out, I hope you’ll enjoy them too.
