Whole-Wheat Medieval Honey Biscuits
I have continued my journey with the Ice and Fire cookbook (aka Game of Thrones for you tv-lubbers). Last time we dined at the Wall. Now we move to the South to Lord Caswell’s table. This recipe comes from A Clash of Kings. It’s been a lot of fun to try out different recipes, especially from this cookbook! This recipe is pretty easy to do. I’ve healthified it a little bit by using whole-wheat flour which increases the fiber and keeps your blood sugar from spiking like it would with white flour. I paired these as a dessert to the Healthy “Accidentally” Paleo Meatballs and they were a hit! This is an authentic medieval recipe, just altered to fit Hungry and Fit’s needs!
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 3.5-4 tbsp butter
- Cold water
- Olive oil
- 1/8 cup honey
- 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
- Handful of powdered sugar
- Mix the flour and salt together
- Cut the butter into small pieces
- Use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles rough breadcrumbs
- Slowly stir in water, but you don’t want to make the dough too watery, just enough so that it sticks together
- Sprinkle flour on a surface and start to roll out your dough
- Roll out to a 1/4 thickness and cut in shapes 2 inches across (you can make circles or funny shapes like mine)
- Put a pan on medium heat and coat with olive oil
- Pan-fry the pastries until golden brown and flip when necessary
- When done, dry the oil off them if there is any
- Heat honey up in a pot
- Drizzle honey over them all
- Sprinkle powdered sugar on top
- Serve warm!
- These are small biscuits!
Can you imagine sinking your teeth into these little bites of comfort and warm honey? Mmm. I might just make me another batch since they’re so simple to cook. This is an easy dessert that doesn’t have too much sugar. Pretend you’re at the table with lords and ladies as you dine on this Ice and Fire-inspired medieval dessert! You don’t feel sick or heavy afterwards, indeed, it’s a light dessert…unless you eat the whole batch at once like we did! But they were too good, we couldn’t help it! If you’re going to have dessert, this is the way to go! Plus, if you want to impress your valentine, this is an easy recipe to do so. And as always, stay hungry and fit!
