I do love me some Trader Joe's triple ginger cookies. They are really good, and come in a plastic tub so they stay crispy for a while too! Not that they last very long.

Thanks Shawn.

I should explain my comment about ginger snap cookies. Shawn built a truly wonderous sauce on a delivery based on crushing ginger snap cookies.

That whole trip he kept saying "I don't want to do all the cooking" and then would disappear below and the most wonderous things would appear.

Why, when an opened tin can works perfectly. Tuna cans make a perfect size biscuit. I don't like undertakers. I have only one on board, my pour-over coffee filter. I suppose I could use it to make yogurt cheese, but not sure if it would leave a taste in it, let alone making the yogurt taste like coffee.

A rum bottle cap works fine.

What kind of can do I use for half-dollar biscuit? LOL

Dave, the marscapone has a pepper jelly mixed in it, a bit of sweet, sour, and sweet which plays beautifully off the salty virgina country ham... the frisse adds some bitter and crunch.

Great idea.

I lean more toward an interesting mustard than marscapone, but that is personal taste.

Biscuits, like many other foods that don't keep well, are made of ingredients that keep beautifully.

My biscuit recipe, adapted from the family recipe of someone I once knew:

2 cups AP flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup UHT milk combined tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice, combined and chilled

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix butter into dry ingredients until mixture looks like crumbs. I usually keep butter at room temperature but for good biscuits it should be cold. Move quickly to keep the butter from melting. Make a well in the center and pour in the chilled buttermilk. Stir just until the dough comes together. The dough will be very sticky. Stop before you think you are done or you'll make hockey pucks instead of biscuits.

Turn dough onto floured surface (I'm fussy but for baking I just flour the countertop and clean up later - this does not work for tile), dust top of dough with flour and gently fold dough over on itself 5 or 6 times. Press into a 1-inch thick round. Cut out biscuits with a 2-inch cutter (I use a Thai curry paste can with top and bottom removed), being sure to push straight down through the dough. Place biscuits on baking sheet so that they just touch. I use parchment paper on the baking sheet. Reform scrap dough, working it as little as possible and continue cutting.

Bake at high heat (crank it up - boat ovens struggle to reach and maintain 450F) until biscuits look like, well, biscuits - about 15 to 20 minutes.
