Hot and homemade, they are hard to beat
Makes 12 biscuits
3 1/2 cups flour (or 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour plus 2 cups white flour)
5 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups unsweetened soy milk
3/5 cup extra-light olive oil
Preheat oven to 450 F (232 C).
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. With a spoon, stir in the soy milk and oil. Stir until just moistened.
Scoop or spoon the biscuit dough onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a biscuit comes out clean.
- Cutout biscuits: Increase the flour to 4 cups. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1 inch thick. Using your favorite cookie cutter, cut out the biscuits and bake on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
- Italian herb biscuits: Add 2 teaspoons basil and 1 teaspoon oregano to the flour mixture.
- Traditional herb biscuits: Add 1 tablespoon parsley flakes, 1 teaspoon thyme, and 1/2 teaspoon sage to the flour mixture.
