Biscuit Twists

Apple Butter Biscuit Twists.


Bake your jam right into your biscuits to have breakfast–with a twist! I use my homemade baking mix, Quick Mix, for this recipe, but you can use any store-bought baking mix as well. Use any flavor of jam or any fruit butter.

How to make Biscuit Twists:

2 cups Quick Mix (or other baking mix)
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
8-ounce jar of jam or fruit butter

Preheat oven to 450-degrees. Measure baking mix and sugar into a medium-sized bowl. Blend in butter with a pastry cutter.

Add egg and milk all at once. Stir to mix; knead a few times, adding a bit of flour if necessary to keep dough from sticking. (You want a stiff biscuit dough–don’t be afraid to add extra flour.) Turn out onto floured surface and roll into a rectangle (approximately 15 inches by 8 inches). Spread jam or fruit butter all over the top.

Fold the dough over lengthwise, pinch edges to seal, and cut dough in strips.

Give each strip a twist.

This is a messy job, but someone’s gotta do it. Or you won’t have any biscuit twists!

Place biscuit twists on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a 450-degree oven for 10-12 minutes, till biscuits are golden brown.

By the way, you can also serve biscuit twists warm with vanilla ice cream for dessert!

As another variation, you can make these with brown sugar and pecans. Here’s how:

For Pecan Biscuit Twists–
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup crushed pecans
1/4 cup brown sugar

Melt two tablespoons butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Crush 1/3 cup pecans. Brush melted butter on top of biscuit dough rectangle. Combine brown sugar and crushed pecans. Spread brown sugar and pecan mixture over buttered dough and proceed as with jam biscuit twists.

    I should make a habit of looking for your recipe of the day BEFORE breakfast. I couldn’t think of what I wanted today, so I settled for cold cereal. Boy, do I wish I’d made these instead! I could make them with the blackberry jam I just got at the Farmer’s Market on Wednesday.

    Oh oh oh! I am so gonna make these for breakfast! I have some raspberry jam just begging to be used in this recipe. (Why yes, jellies and jams do talk to me all the time!)

    These look so good! How do you think they’d turn out with some crumbled bacon and cheese for the filling instead?

    Amy, I think that’s a great idea. For a savory filling, though, I’d take out the 3 tablespoons added sugar in the recipe. (There’s already some sugar in the baking mix, so to do a savory filling, you wouldn’t want to add any more, I don’t think.)

    I’m glad you attack your pecans with a hammer like I do for my daughter thought I had lost it – my mind that is. I use a meat tenderizer thingy.

    These sound yummy! I just made some butter so I’ve got buttermilk to use up and it would be down-right silly not to make these! :happyflower:

    Yummy! Do these need to be refrigerated after they’re baked? Thinking of making up a quick batch for camping this weekend but don’t want to if they’re going to end up soggy in the cooler

    No, they don’t need to be refrigerated.

    Thanks for the quick answer, you rock! These are going to be an awesome way to use up some of that home made jam I just made and had no idea what I would do with it lol

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
