Look, let's just get this out there. I am a journalist. And it is common knowledge that journalists are bad at math. So when I really really want to make a biscuits/cookies/anything recipe with a serving size of six, I get understandably nervous about the division that's about to happen. That's why I love cookbooks designed for one or two people. But alas the other day I really wanted to make the biscuits in Chrissy Teigen's 'Cravings,' so I whipped out the calculator.
I love baking but it is no lie that it is a science and I am still mastering that element of the baking process (science, math, I'm sure you're sensing a theme here...but hello! Writing, I got that down.) So i am always a little nervous for the finished product, but these turned out PERFECT. I split the recipe in half (see below) and cooked them in a cast iron.
I think the key really is not overmixing the buttermilk and flower mixture. My dough felt a little too wet so I added more flour. The end result was fluffy, golden brown deliciousness. And guys, let me tell you about this jam I used on them. Last month we went to Charleston for my mom's birthday and went to Hominy Grill (highly recommend). They had the most incredible blueberry and vanilla jam. And they sell it! I wanted to buy so many of the other flavors but was worried about suitcase weight. So right now I am savoring ever last drop of this sweet and tart jam.
Skillet Biscuits for Two

Now the perfect biscuits for two! Or let's be honest, for one...I may or may not have eaten these throughout the day. Tell me, what's your go-to place for small serving size recipes?!
