Product Review: Bonne Maman Strawberry Preserves

I love all things French, and these preserves are made in France. These Strawberry Preserves are made from strawberries, sugar, natural cane sugar, concentrated lemon juice and fruit pectin; this was the ingredients noted on the back of the label.  These preserves have nice size pieces of strawberries and a fresh homemade taste. The taste is not overly sweet, just right. I decided to go a traditional route in a not so traditional way, by making homemade biscuits to pair with these preserves, but served them for dinner. Yep, we like to have breakfast for dinner once a week. So, the saltiness of the bacon, and the hot homemade biscuits with these preserves with your choice of eggs, just made for a lovely breakfast dinner. Note: These strawberry preserves were provided by Andros Foods USA  SRP $5.49.  Note: I saw this product on sale at our local Kroger's at a great price; so check it out and tell me what you think!

Lorrie's Food Processor Heavy Whipping Cream Biscuits

4 tablespoons of cubed salted butter (16 little cubes)
2  cups self - rising flour
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup and 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream
*Additional heavy whipping cream to brush biscuit tops before baking

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put flour, sugar, cubed butter in food processor, pulse a few times then add in heavy whipping cream and pulse until the mixture forms a ball. Sprinle flour on a board or counter and pat or roll out dough about 3/4 of an inch thick. Use a 2 inch biscuit cutter and cut out 8 biscuits. Brush tops with heavy whipping cream, then bake for about 15-16 minutues or until lightly browned.

If you want to add a cocktail, why not add a mimosa to the menu and call it an evening!
