Yogurt Biscuits recipe

Antilope | Feb 23, 2008 07:33 AM

I've been working on developing light, flaky biscuits, using
canola oil and yogurt. Today I tried this recipe. These are
the best biscuits that I have ever made. Using a
food processor makes it real easy. I used
homemade yogurt made with whole milk.
Because it uses oil, this dough is non-sticky
and very easy to handle.

Yogurt Biscuits

3 cups all purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
3/4 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoons salt

1/2 cup canola oil

1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup yogurt

melted butter

*Preheat oven to 425F.
*Add dry ingredients to a food processor.
*Pulse 5 or 10 times to mix dry ingredients.
*Add cooking oil in fine stream while pulsing food processor.
*Continue pulsing until mix looks like small crumbs.
*Mix milk and yogurt in measuring cup.
*Add milk/yogurt while pulsing food processor.
*Pulse until dough balls up and holds together.
Add a few more tablespoons of milk, if needed.
*Place dough on cutting board and knead 2 or 3 times until
dough holds together. Over kneading makes tough biscuits.
*Using your hands, press dough out to 1/2-inch thick.
*Cut out biscuits with 2-inch cutter. Reform dough scraps and cut out more
biscuits until dough is gone.
*Arrange biscuits on baking sheet so they are touching each other.
*Brush tops with melted butter.
*Bake 18-21 minutes or until tops are slightly browned.

Makes about 12 biscuits
