Authentic Suburban Gourmet: Onion Biscuits

Read Time:2 Minute, 56 Second

I believe Colonel Mustard did it in the dining room with a
candle stick
. Do you love the game CLUE? 
I grew up playing this imaginative board game that produced many
outcomes based on the roll of the dice and the order of pulling cards.  Much like this classic game, the food
blogging world is taking a spin on the concept for a brand new online cooking
club called – Blogger C.L.U.E. Society.

It is somewhat of a surreptitious society for food bloggers that
involves secrecy, fun, challenges and playing the game well with our fellow
members.  Each month there is a theme and
you must dig through your assigned blog to find a recipe you want to duplicate
and must keep it secret for an entire month until the second Wednesday of each
month when the grand reveal happens.  For
our inaugural post to kick off the Blogger CL.U.E. Society we were challenged
to find a recipe that we want to serve for Thanksgiving.

I was thrilled to receive Christy Majors blog called
Confessions of a Culinary Diva.  She is
food and wine enthusiast who loves the Cooking Channel and reading cookbooks –
she is my kind of gal. Christy loves to travel and share her love of food and
wine on her blog but is a banker by day. 
She has a ton of delicious recipes to choose from and I have to admit I
jumped on her blog several times before making a decision.  I simply swoon for a great biscuit and when I
came across St. Germaine des pres Onion Biscuits, I knew I had my recipe
secured AND a side for Thanksgiving.

I actually had to dig a bit for the recipe, since it was a
French Fridays with Dorie challenge but after a quick Google search, that
recipe was mine.  I guess I took the
“CLUE” portion literally this month. 
After making the recipe, I made a few tweeks and the end result was pure
buttery goodness with a hint of caramelized onions.  In a word – divine!  Thank you Christy for the inspiration and the
great recipe to have for this upcoming Thanksgiving!

Onion Biscuits

Makes 12

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

7 Tablespoons Butter

1 Small onion, 1 Cup finely diced onions

2 Cups Flour

1 Tablespoon Baking Powder

2 teaspoons Sugar

½ teaspoon Salt

½ Cup Milk + 2 tablespoons for brushing on top

In a skillet, add 1 tablespoon butter and melt over medium
heat.  Next add the diced onions and
sauté until lightly golden brown.  Remove
from heat and cool down in the refrigerator.

In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, sugar and baking
powder.  Stir until combined.  Next dice the 6 tablespoons of butter in to
small cubes and add to the dry ingredients. 
Using your fingers, break up the butter into very small pieces.  Add the chilled sautéed onions and mix.  Add the milk and using your hands, bring the
mixture together until it forms a ball.

Line a baking sheet with parchment and put the ball of
dough.  Press down the dough until it
forms a square that is about one inch high. 
Use a sharp knife the cut the dough into 12 squares.  Place each square about 2 inches apart and
lightly brush the top of each one with the milk.

Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.  Enjoy!
