Cinnamon Molasses BiscuitsLast month Jimmy and I went to Vegas for my birthday. While we did stay on the strip, we explored and hiked so much outside the strip. Our second day there we tried this brewery that was amazing and the bartender recommended Biscuits and Bourbon for dinner. This restaurant is one of my all time favorite places to eat. We ended up going twice, because their food was so good. Especially their biscuits. So for the past month I have been working on a molasses biscuit. And I’m so happy to be able to share it with you.
Happy Baking!!

Weekly Motivation

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Luke 2:8-12
