These are a long-time favorite of my husband and I. I realized we hadn't made them since before my youngest was born and I am not sure why. You can make these using store bought biscuits in a can or you can make your own biscuit dough.
This biscuit dough is based on a recipe I found online called Mee-maw's Buttermilk Biscuits. This is our go to biscuit recipe and it is really, really good - almost bojangles good. Except instead of buttermilk I use coconut milk and vinegar and if you don't want to use real butter, you can sub in margarine, just make sure to use the stick version to properly form the biscuit dough. With this recipe you want to work to keep everything cold, cold, cold just like pie dough, so the butter doesn't warm up at all until it hits the oven.
|veggie dogs, flour, butter, salt, coconut milk, vinegar, baking soda and powder|
|mix your dry ingredients together|
|then cut your cold butter or margarine into small pieces|
|toss the butter into the dry and pinch pieces flat, they should be the thickness of a nickel|
|chill the mix for 15 minutes or so, we use cold flour, so we don't have to wait as long|
|arrange your veggie dogs (field meat frankfurters for the adults, yves for the kids)|
|now mix in your coconut milk with a TB of vinegar|
|you should have a wet dough|
|fold the dough into thirds like a letter on a well floured surface, then do it again the other way|
|roll or pat it to 1/2 inch thickness|
either use a biscuit cutter (no twisting) or cut into squares for blankets
|place eat dog diagonally|
|then pinch the corners up and over|
|bake in a hot hot oven for 15-20 minutes|
|they should be just golden brown on top, let rest 5 minutes|
|then gobble them up|
Comfort food rocks!
