When Tricia and I joined FFWD, the very first recipe
that I wanted to make was the Saint Germain-des-Pres
onion biscuits. We have been cooking for over
a year and I still had not made the recipe.
I was happy to see them listed in the March schedule,
I planned to make them for Sunday night's supper.
The recipe is very easy, and I was able to use my new biscuit
cutters that I found in Wegman's housewares department.
Mind you, I did not need these gadgets, but they
will go very well with all the others in the cabinet.
The biscuits were not as flaky as some that I have made,
but the flavor was wonderful with the addition of the onion.
After I cut them out and put them on the cookie sheet I placed
them into my refrigerator to be baked at dinner time.
Maybe that is the reason they did not rise. I look forward to
seeing the results of the other bloggers on FFWD.
Hubby and I loved the biscuits and I know
I will be baking them again soon.
This week was a reminder of how very much Nana and I enjoy
"French Fridays With Dorie". Fridays.
Even if I did not crank out these biscuits myself :)
We had been challenged recently by the adding the "Tuesdays With Dorie"
to our roster....and we tried valiantly to keep up with it all until the famed
"Rugelach" recipe of this Tuesday. Suffice it to say that you will find
no Rugelach post on this blog :)

So I have enjoyed a wonderful "vacation" week of cooking neither the
complicated (though I have no doubt they would have been insanely
good........) cookies that no one in this house actually needs, nor struggling
to get through the posting and commenting whose time far outweighs
that involved in the cooking. In fact, I got so lazy I did not
even cook the biscuits ! But I am sharing a few "St. Germain de Pres"
photos from our trip last year. Ah, the memories.
Nana and I have gotten a huge kick out of not only the recipes in
FFWD, but in the sharing of comments with this group.
We are hugely touched by the kind and funny words that are shared
with us and we look forward to having the time and energy to
continue this journey. And cutting out that Tuesdays deal will help :)

Happy French Fridays all ~
