Themed parties aren’t for everyone, but if you’re like, “hell yeah I LOVE themed parties!”, these pink speckled biscuits naturally dyed with beet powder are perfect to take to your upcoming Valentine’s Day brunch. And if you don’t have an upcoming brunch, just go right ahead and make these for yourself. You CAN share with the wifey, bf, hubs, or kiddos, but you don’t haaave to. No one is judging.
Makes roughly 8 biscuits
3/4 c. milk (I used almond milk, any would be fine)
1 TB baking powder
2 c. Jovial Einkorn flour
3 t. beet powder
1/4 c. butter
1 t. sea salt
Heart shaped cookie cutter
1 big bowl and 3 smaller ones
Einkorn flour is an ancestral variety of wheat and is sold by Jovial Foods. It has a very luscious flavor and contains less gluten, but regular flour will work as well.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
Place all ingredients besides the beet powder in the largest bowl
Freeze the butter until you’re ready to cut it into the flour mixture. Before you mix the dough together, divide the beet powder in the three bowls: 1/4 t., 1 t., and 1 3/4 t.
Mix together ingredients, divide dough into thirds, and place in the bowls
Mix in that beet powder and use the cookie cutter to form the heart shape
Bake for 12-15 minutes and voila! Festive and delicious pink speckled biscuits.
