From The Breakfast Book by Marion Cunningham<op></op>

Makes 12 biscuits <op></op>

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

I halve this recipe, works great.<op></op>

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

2 c. all-purpose flour<op></op>

1 tsp. salt<op></op>

1 Tbsp. baking powder<op></op>

2 tsp. sugar<op></op>

1-1 1/2 cups heavy cream<op></op>

1/3 c. butter, melted<op></op>

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Use an ungreased baking sheet.<op></op>

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Stir the dry ingredients with a fork to blend and lighten. Slowly add 1 cup of the cream to the mixture, stirrring constantly. Gather the dough together ; when it holds together and feels tender, it is ready to knead. If the dough seems shaggy and pieces are dry and falling away, then slowly add enough additional cream to make the dough hold together.<op></op>

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Place the dough on a lightly floured board and knead for 1 minute. Pat the dough into a square that is about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 12 squares and dip each into the melted butter so all sides are coated. Place the biscuits 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the biscuits are lightly browned. Serve hot.<op></op>

4 large anchovy fillets, mashed to a paste

1 1/2 tsp. minced fresh oregano

1/4 tsp. minced Calabrain hiclies or pinch of redpepper flakes

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

8 slices country-style bread, each 1/3-inch thick

1/3 lb. whole milk mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced

3 eggs

2 Tbsp. milk

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

In a small bowl, stir to combine the anchovy paste, oregano, chilies or red pepper flakes, and olive oil. Spread one side of 4 bread slices with the anchovy mixture, dividing it evenly. Top with the mozzarella, dividing it evenly, then with the remaining bread slices.

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk.

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Heat a large nonstick skillet or a griddle over moderate heat. When it is hot, lightly oil the griddle if it is not nonstick.

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

One at a time, dip the sandwiches in the egg bath, coating both sides. Set them in the skillet or on the griddle. Cook, turning once, until the bread is well browned on both sides and the cheese is molten, about 3 mintues per side. Cut in halves or quarters and serve immediately.

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the Brussels sprouts and cook until they are tender but retain a touch of crispness, about 3 mintues. Drain.<op></op>

Cinnamon Rolls

Adapted from cooks.com

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Makes two pans of 12 rolls

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

2 packages yeast

1/2 c. warm (not hot) water

2 c. lukewarm milk

1/2 c. granulated sugar

3 tsp. baking powder

1/3 c. soft butter (plus extra for kneading)

2 tsp. salt

1 egg

5-6 c. all-purpose flour

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Filling

4 Tbsp. soft butter

1/2 c. granulated sugar

1/4 c. brown sugar

1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. cinnamon

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Icing

6 Tbsp. butter

3 c. powdered sugar

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

3-6 Tbsp. hot water

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in milk, 1/2 c. sugar, 1/3 c. butter, baking powder, salt, egg, and 2-3 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle (I usually use 5 1/2 - 6 cups). Turn dough onto a well buttered board. With buttered hands, knead dough until smooth and elastic.

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Transfer dough to greased bowl. Cover and let rise until double, about 1 1/2 hours. Line two 9x12 pans with parchment paper and spray paper and pans with nonstick spray. Roll 1/2 of dough into a 12"x10" rectangle. Spread with 2 Tbsp. of butter (if it's not soft enough, I just melt it and smear it around). In a small bowl, mix granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle half over dough. Roll up beginning at wide side. Pinch side to seal. Cut into 12 slices and place slices evenly in pan. Wrap tightly in foil. Repeat with the other half of the dough. Refrigerate at least 12 hours but no longer than 48 hours. (To bake immediately, cover and let rise until double.)

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Heat over to 350F degrees. Remove foil. Bake 30-35 minutes until lightly browned.

<span lang="FR">

<op></op></span>

Mix butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Add hot water 1 Tbsp. at a time until icing reaches desired consistency. Spread over warm (not hot) rolls.
