Pecan Yogurt Biscuits [TWD]

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    They look just tall and fluffy and everything that biscuits should be. But I think I would soundly die in Peru… no sour cream?! Wow… I may never gripe about PR again. I can get sour cream by the gallons, I love the stuff. Of course, in light of being without, one must adapt. And of course, our tastes evolve. It truly is interesting to notice.
