Baking biscuits in your oven is fine and all, but if you want to turn out some tasty ones in a very short time, consider turning to your trusty waffle maker. Turns out you're only 90 seconds away from crispy, chewy goodness.
Although your oven will still have its place for making large batches of biscuits, using your waffle iron can bake one up in just 90 seconds. It's the perfect solution for previously prepared dough when you just need a quick sugar fix instead of an entire pan hanging around the house to tempt you.
It's a simple process of heating your waffle iron (no matter what shape or size it might be) on high and coating it with a non-stick spray. Spoon batter into each section of your waffle iron. This will ensure even baking and that all your biscuits will finish at the same time. All that's left is to remove them from the heat and chow down!
We ran across the idea on food weblog The Kitchn, and after a little more searching found two tested and approved recipes to try your hand at — one from Martha Stewart and the other from recipe weblog Fine Cooking. If you'd like to see the process in action you can head over to Martha Stewwart for a short video (with a slow load time) to see them made before you go all MacGyver meets Cookie Monster on your own. If you've tried this method before, let's hear how it worked out for you in the comments.
