Bannock Biscuits with Tre Stelle® Cheese and Fresh Fruit
Fresh, local berries bursting with flavour. JuicyPrep Time:
15 minutes Ready In:
1 hour or less Serves:
3 cups + 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 2 tablespoons baking powder 1/4 cup melted butter or oil 1 1/2 cups water 1 teaspoon vanilla
Once baked layer with your Favourite Tre Stelle® Cheese - I suggest Tre Stelle® Ricotta, Tre Stelle® Feta or Tre Stelle® Mascarpone. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Sift together 3 cups of flour, salt, sugar and baking powder into a large bowl. Mix together the water, vanilla and the butter or oil, and then pour into the flour mixture. Using your hand or a wooden spoon, mix together all the ingredients until everything is wet and incorporated. Be careful not to overmix. Turn out the dough on a flat surface, sprinkled with the additional 1/4 cup of flour, and knead 8 to 10 time to reduce the stickiness of the dough. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to an inch thick. Using a cookie cutter, or an overturned glass, cut out rounds of dough and transfer them to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake the biscuits for 25 to 30 minutes until the bottoms are a golden brown. Remove from the oven and let the biscuits rest for 5 minutes. Using a fork, pierce the biscuits along the side to split them open. Layer your favourite Tre Stelle® Cheese and fresh local fruit in the centre of each one and drizzle with a little sweetness, like honey or maple syrup.
