Biscuits with strawberry jam

Don’t you love the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables at this time of year?  It makes eating healthy so much easier!

Yesterday I passed by these beauties and bought a bunch with the intention of making jam however they were quickly consumed so today I won’t be able to share my favorite homeade jam recipe, ha!

I did bake biscuits though and the recipe is super easy!   Buttermilk Biscuits are a weekend favorite and there’s nothing quite like a flaky biscuit that’s all soft and pillowy on the inside hot out of the oven.  Spread honeybutter on top or add your favorite jam for a special treat!

The William Sonama pastry blender  makes the process of cutting the butter into the flour so easy.  Once the dough is prepared, place it on your favorite baking tray lined with parchment paper and cut into 12 rectangles.
