This incredible Ted Lasso biscuit recipe tastes like buttery goodness

These little treats are every bit as wholesome and charming as the show itself.

Ted Lasso has been enchanting Apple TV+ viewers for three seasons now. Fans of the show love it for its wholesome, lighthearted charm and loveable characters. Including, of course, the title character, played by Jason Sudeikis. If you love the show as much as we do, you’ll know that part of that charm, of course, is his gifting his boss, Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham), with a pink box of deliciously buttery biscuits each morning.

While rumor has it that the actual biscuits used on set were pretty unremarkable, the magic of Hollywood makes them look absolutely divine, and fans at home have been salivating at the sight of these simple cookies. This prompted the more culinarily talented fans to create their own versions at home, and now, the internet is absolutely jammed with “Ted Lasso Biscuit” recipes. We tried this one ourselves and were blown away by the buttery sweet simplicity and wholesome, Grandma’s kitchen goodness of these biscuits.

So whether you’re a fan of Ted Lasso or not, these little treats will have you filled with the same love and tenderness that the hit show is so famous for.

(From Jessica Gavin)


  • 1 cup unsalted buttersoftened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugarplus more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher saltor sea salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Set the oven rack to the middle position. Heat to 325F.
  2. Line an 8 by 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper with a 1-inch overhang on each side. Set aside.
  3. Using a stand or hand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt, on low speed to combine, then increase to medium speed.
  4. Mix until light and creamy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  5. Add the flour and mix on low until a hydrated and crumbly dough is formed. Do not overmix.
  6. Add the dough to the prepared baking pan. Lightly press it down until it evenly fills the pan. Place a piece of plastic wrap on top, and use the bottom of a spatula to flatten the surface.
  7. Use a fork to lightly prick the surface of the dough, about 36 times, evenly spaced. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Alternatively, freeze for a maximum of 15 minutes.
  8. Bake until the surface and edges are golden brown, about 30 to 35 minutes.
  9. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. While the biscuits are still hot, use a sharp knife to cut them into rectangles of desired size. Optionally, sprinkle the surface with granulated sugar while warm, about 1 tablespoon.
  10. Let it cool completely in the pan. Carefully lift the biscuits out using the parchment paper overhang. Re-slice the lines if needed to separate pieces.

You need to try these incredible beef marinades
A good piece of steak starts with a good marinade. These are the ones to try.

There are a thousand tips and tricks to achieving a flavorful, tender, juicy, and delicious beef dish. Dry brining, tenderizing, and of course, marinading beef are wonderfully easy ways to ensure a perfectly seasoned, melt-in-your mouth, incredible texture. But what goes into a marinade? How do you do it? How long should you marinate your beef?
What is a marinade?
A marinade is basically a prepared sauce that goes onto meat before it's cooked, not after. The meat is placed in the sauce (marinade) inside a leak-proof container to allow the marinade ingredients to slowly break down the beef proteins.

A marinade is a sauce that contains fat, acid, and seasonings. Fat can be an oil, buttermilk, mayonnaise, or yogurt. An acid can be lemon, limes, oranges, any type of vinegar, wine, or tomatoes. The seasonings can be paired with the acid to create a flavor profile. The fat will create moisture and will allow any fat-soluble ingredients to be absorbed into the meat. The acid will break down the fibers of the steak to weaken its structure, making it tender. You have to be careful because if you let the beef sit in the marinade too long, you run the risk of the marinade changing the texture of the meat completely. For example, the acid cooks the meat slightly like in ceviche, if it stays too long in the marinade, you will have tough, slightly cooked meat.

LORE Chapli kebab.

When it comes to kebabs, it's rarely done better than in Indian cuisine. And at LORE in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Chef Jay Kumar is putting his distinctive spin on Indian kebabs and giving them a modern twist.

Using inspirations from his time spent in South India, Switzerland, and Brooklyn, Kumar is plating up classic Indian street food flavors with elegant presentation and sophisticated flavors. If you're wondering why his kebabs aren't on skewers, this is actually standard for some preparations. Certain types of kebabs, like the chapli, are shaped more like a spiced hamburger patty versus the typical meat skewer, and cooked in a large skillet. Quite simply, these are some of the best, one-of-a-kind Indian food recipes we've ever encountered.

Meatless meals are good for the planet — Try these tasty recipes on Earth Day
Going meatless doesn't mean going flavorless. Give these recipes a try this Earth Day

Do you love meat? You're not alone. Whether it's a delicious steak or sizzling, crispy bacon, there's plenty to love about meat. Unfortunately, studies have shown eating less meat could help mitigate climate change, which puts most of us in a conundrum. Meat is delicious, but we really like the environment, too. While there are alternatives — studies have also shown that by 2040, a majority of meat that we eat will either be vegan or lab-grown — you don’t have to go full-on vegan to help ease the strain.

If you love meat too much to give it up completely, even just adopting a vegetarian diet one day a week (or one meal of the day) can help. (As a bonus, it’s also beneficial to give your gut a break from the hard stuff.) And what better day to start your new routine than Earth Day? Here's a full day's menu to get you started. Your stomach — and the planet — will thank you.
