Butter Biscuits – inspired by “Townhouse”

Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?

I adhered pretty strictly to the recipe for this biscuit. I’d never made crackers before and I feel that, when trying something for the first time, it’s better for me to have a clear guide.

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

This week I was inspired by one of my older brothers. Growing up, his favorite snack was Townhouse crackers with Merkts cheese spread. I wanted to see if I could come close to recreating one of his favorite childhood foods. I’m confident that he’d love my homemade version, and I’ll be making them again when he visits!

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
