Nutella Biscuits

Okay. I'm making a promise: No. More. Substitutions.

Tonight's recipe was supposed to be a more complicated entree. But I realized that people are going to want to EAT that particular dish, and it's not one that will keep well as leftovers. Therefore, I once again defaulted to--sorry, Nat!--a Fabio Viviani *sigh* Recipeasy. Nutella Biscuits are simple and, in my opinion, would be fun for kids to do. (I've included the recipe below.)

I don't have much to say about the taste of these biscuits for 2 reasons: 1) they burned; and 2) I used half whole wheat flour because I ran out of all-purpose and didn't feel like going back to the store, hence the reason for my opening declaration. I'm positive they're great when done right, though. And maybe shave 2-3 minutes off the bake time, depending on your oven and baking pan.

Technically, this was my SECOND new recipe this week. On Super Bowl Sunday, I attempted Veggie Bites, which are shredded carrots, zucchini and potatoes rolled with flour into a ball, flattened into a two-bite patty and fried. Again, since I didn't do everything exactly like I should have, they didn't turn out well. And they weren't just sub par--they were terrible--masses of mush. I couldn't bear to record the mess in a photograph. 

Do I at least get an A this week for effort? :^/

2 cup of Flour
2 tsp of Baking Powder
1 tsp of Salt
3 tsp of Butter at room temperature
4 tbsp of Nutella
3/4 cup of Milk

1. Starting by combined all the dry ingredients
2. Add Butter and Nutella
3. Blend, then add Milk
4. Mix and place the Dough on top of a floured board and knead few times
5. Pat to 1 inch thickness and cut with Biscuits cutter
6. Place them in a oven tray Bake at 450 for about 15 minutes

This recipe can be found under Fabio's Recipeasy tab on


  1. Well, I'm certainly going to try Nutella biscuits. Yum! As far as the veggie bites go, I have tried to make something similar (from Paula Deen) and did it exactly like she said and they still turned into a mushy pile of greasy veggies.

    And yes, A for effort!

  2. Interesting..Nutella? Is that like the horrible salty stuff they eat? And I forgive you for all the Fabio recipes. I get it!
