Moldy Biscuits


This is one of my favorite biscuit recipes, transformed for Halloween. Feel free to leave out the green food coloring, but leave in the scallions for a marvelous flavor. These are light and buttery and perfect with any meal.

3 tablespoons butter
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup buttermilk
green food coloring
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Saute the scallions in 3 tablespoons butter until they are soft. Set the scallions aside and let cool. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Cut the 1/2 cup butter into small pieces and cut it into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl mix together the 3/4 cup buttermilk and the green food coloring, until it is a very dark shade of green. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, and add the scallions and the green buttermilk. Mix until a very sticky dough just holds together. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 20 times. Pat out until 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a 2 inch cutter. Place biscuits on a baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Mix the melted butter and buttermilk and brush on the biscuits. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
