Miniature Icon Benne Biscuits eliminate Sunday blahs

The holidays ended and a blah Sunday set in.

The only thing we can think to do in a situation like this is to bake. But what? With the Duke Ellington Orchestra playing in the background, in my attempt to inspire creativity, we blindly took one of the bread books off the shelf.

Iconic Bakery: English Icon muffins - much better than store-bought

Do you love English muffins as much as the Icon loves them?

(And we even omitted 1 cup of sugar from the original recipe)
