9:46 am
couch. >> what do you got in there already? >> colby jack, cream cheese, now we're adding our buffalo sauce. and then a little bit of ranch. then we're going to take this, mix it really, really well and turn this puppy on and let it go. >> elizabeth, is the buffalo sauce from a jar? >> it is. you can buy this at any grocery store. could not be any easier. >> you can make your own but why would you? >> the other thing is what i love is the -- y cheese bleu cheese as well. if you didn't want to do colby jack. >> how long could you keep this in the slow cooker? >> i would say about three hours. >> it won't last that long. >> exactly. then just turn it to warm and you've got it all day long. all day. >> it is so good! >> isn't it good? the other thing, we even made sliders with this one time. took great little buns, filled it and then had those as well.
9:47 am
the other thing that i am so excited about is sweet potato casserole. i don't know about y'all, but literally it is in my refrigerator right now. it still halls the spoon in it because every time i walk by the refrigerator, i got tired of washing spoons. we're going to make a sweet potato biscuit. it is actually out of this world. use your sweet potatoes even if they've got marshmallows on them. here's our grid. we have our bake salt, butter, sweet potato, milk, cranberry sauce. >> does it matter what kind of flour you use. >> it's got to be an all-purpose flour. we don't want self-rising for this. anything -- a really light flour works beautifully for biscuits. we're going to have our sweet potato casserole. i hate to see it go, al.
9:48 am
now we have our cubed butter. make sure that it is really, really cold. >> does it have to be cold? >> yeah. i'll tell you why. almost frozen. once those little baby pockets of butter, you've got players of flour. once it melts it disappears. that's what makes our flakes. do you see what i'm saying? >> science! >> same thing for a pie crust. mix this together, don't overmix it. then start adding our milk. once we get it kind of mixed in -- >> whole we may not need all of this. you just try and judge it for yourself. >> what's tconsistency? >> we want it to all come together but we don't want to overmix it because then we'll have a tough biscuit. >> nobody likes a tough biscuit. >> we have it all rolled out here. one of our secrets, don't -- when you press it down -- it's our -- we want to turn this. we want to turn it. >> don't turn?
9:49 am
>> why not? >> what happens is if you turn it, it locks the sides of this and it will not rise beautifully. >> chef secret. >> isn't that nice? i could do this all day long. i'm going to let you do it though. >> in all my years of doing cookies -- >> i even bake biscuits together side by side just to see. i twisted one and i did the other because i didn't believe, and it did make all the difference in the world. >> you like parchment paper. >> absolutely. i just think it is really easy. once you are do away. you don't have to wash your pan. at this point i'm exhausted, tired of cooking, i'm over it. but by making these few little things it keeps the family going over the weekend. >> what i like about both of them is they don't taste like thanksgiving. so it is a change of pace. >> mix your cranberry sauce, mix with just a little bit of room temperature butter.
9:50 am
>> oh, honey, thank you. >> happy holidays. >> this dip was amazing. all gone. >> i appreciate it. recipes are at we're back in a moment. but first, this is "today" on nbc. ine a world where the holidays are about joy again. where days are filled with magic instead of madness. at t.j. maxx, marshalls and homegoods, it's why we never have crazy sales. never make you clip coupons. and always have amazing prices on popular brands and thoughtful gifts. it's time to bring back the holidays
