Maple-Bacon Biscuit Bake

  INGREDIENTS: Syrup:

Biscuits:

  DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven to 475°F. Lightly grease an 8" square or 9" round pan.

2. Syrup: Chop the cooked bacon into 1/2" pieces. Combine the bacon with the remaining syrup ingredients, stirring until well combined. Spread in the bottom of the prepared pan.

3. Biscuits: Whisk the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

4. Work in the butter until the mixture is crumbly; some larger, pea-sized pieces of butter may remain intact.

5. Add the milk or buttermilk, stirring to make a sticky dough.

6. Drop the dough in heaping tablespoonfuls atop the syrup in the pan. A tablespoon cookie scoop, slightly overfilled, works well here.

7. Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes. Turn the oven off, and leave them in the oven for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until they're golden brown.

8. Remove the biscuits from the oven, and immediately turn the pan over onto a serving plate. Lift off the pan, and scrape any syrup left in the pan onto the biscuits. Pull biscuits apart to serve. Yield: 16 small biscuits.
