Another thing I am making is scratch biscuits to serve with all the yummy lamb gravy I have. It's been decades since I've made biscuits!

I can't remember the last time I had biscuits.  They're good.

Friend, I'm assuming you bake the pudding after putting it in a buttered dish and before studding it with the pecans and raspberries. Correct me if I'm wrong because I'm getting ready to make this dish in the next day or two!

I'm also making sweet potato ravioli with leftover yams and won ton wrappers. It's a recipe from the Pioneer Woman: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2014/11/pumpkin-ravioli/

No, I baked it after adding the pecans and raspberries.  Good luck!

I got some left-overs from Christmas, but I'm just reheating them and eating them as they were, no new fancy recreations.

:laugh:

That is perfect, Chuck, although I don't think I'd call Shepherd's Pie, bread pudding, and soup fancy. More like comfort food, which I really need right now since the Polar Freeze has returned to Colorado. I just finished preparing 3 shepherd's pies, all except the mashed potato topping. I added broth to the remainder of the filling, and now I'm eating lamb soup.

Speaking of MP, there's a heated debate raging over potato terminology on the Prairie Home Companion site. Should it be called mashed potatoes, or whipped? What is it in your neck of the woods? Inquiring minds want to know!

The biscuit dough is chilling in the fridge. It turns out that this is the perfect time of year to make biscuits, because you have to keep the butter and milk cold. Why? You want the tiny beads of butter to be suspended within the flour, not melted. If the milk and butter are soft, it will be a gluey mess.

The recipe is simplicity itself: 2 cups flour, 4 tsp. baking powder, 3/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 cup butter, and 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk. Sift the dry ingredients together, slice the cold butter and cut it into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter until the dough resembles tiny peas. Sprinkle the milk over while tossing with a fork. Gather up the dough in a ball, work it briefly with your hands and put in the fridge to chill. Roll the dough out about 1/2 inch thick, cut into rounds with a biscuit cutter or jar lid, place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 425 degrees F until golden brown. Makes 20.

They will be so good with the lamb gravy! I'm hoping to persuade my Denver Brokie friends to get together with me. I know Offline Chuck particularly likes biscuits and gravy.

They sound a lot like scones.

Maybe they are the same, just different name.

biscuits tend to be softer than scones.
