Mama Biscuit

*Sponsored Post
Lesley Riley, also known as Mama Biscuit, makes fresh gourmet biscuits with the finest ingredients and no added preservatives.  Her trademark are adorable heart-shaped biscuits, in a variety of sweet and savory combinations - "always made with love!"

Lesley contacted me to sample her biscuits, and I was happy to do so.  She delivered them to me on a cold rainy evening, and they were still warm and wrapped up in super cute purple packaging.

She noted they are best served warm (just pop in the microwave for 15 seconds), or at room temperature.  If you don't want to eat them right away, the biscuits can be frozen up to 6 months, but should only be thawed and re-frozen once.

I sampled six different Mama Biscuit varieties.  All were incredibly soft in texture, and had unique flavor combinations.  I could tell Lesley used high quality ingredients, such as pistachios in the Apple, Pear, & Pistachio biscuit, which was topped with a homemade caramel drizzle.  This sweet biscuit was perfect for breakfast.

For lunch, I tried the most savory in the bunch - Chicken Stuffed Pot Pie with Herb de Provence and rosemary.  The rosemary was super fragrant and really elevated the basic biscuit recipe base.  This was one of my favorite biscuits.  I also tried the Eggnog Peppermint, that had specks of candy cane inside, while Keith enjoyed the Pineapple, Banana, & Rum Upside Down biscuit.  It was very fruity and tasted exactly like the famous cake.

Later, we shared the Chocolate Meets Salty that was topped with caramel drizzle and bourbon smoked sea salt.  The dark chocolate flavor was intense throughout the dough, and not too sweet providing a satisfying dessert.  I loved the contradiction of salt against the caramel.

Another favorite was the Kahlua, Pecan, & Brown Sugar biscuit stuffed with brie.  This sweet and savory combination was a great snack for after work.  Keith really likes pecans, so I felt slightly guilty for eating it all without saving any for him to taste. Oops! #sorrynotsorry

Check out all the biscuit flavors available from Mama Biscuit.  Buy them for yourself, as the individual biscuit is a suitable size for one.  The biscuits stayed fresh in the refrigerator for a couple days, and were easy to take out and heat up in the microwave whenever we wanted.  The heart-shaped biscuits would also be great to cater for a brunch party like a bridal shower or baby shower.  Contact Mama Biscuit directly to place your order.
