Since I grew up in the Northeast, I really don't crave a biscuit with every meal. However, when the mood does strike, it strikes hard so I just go with it. I wanted a biscuit for dinner the other night and I didn't have any milk. I figured I'd just have to spend the night suffering in biscuit-less agony, when I remembered that, while I don't always have milk in the house...I DO always have beer. How about a beer biscuit? It is still flaky and tender, but with a hint of extra flavor from the beer. I used a wheat beer because, why not? I also make them "mini" because the only biscuit cutter that I have is the "letter O" from an alphabet cookie cutter set taht I have and it is smaller than a normal biscuit. I like the mini biscuits because then I can have two! This wouldn't be great with jam for breakfast, but I could still see it with bacon and eggs. It really stood out for dinner and I loved it.
