Easy Baking Powder Biscuits

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.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. 2Add dry ingredients to a food processor.
  3. 3Pulse 5 or 10 times to mix dry ingredients.
  4. 4Add cooking oil in fine stream while pulsing food processor.
  5. 5Continue pulsing until mix looks like small crumbs.
  6. 6Mix milk and yogurt in measuring cup.
  7. 7Add milk/yogurt while pulsing food processor.
  8. 8Pulse until dough balls up and holds together. Add a few more tablespoons of milk, if needed.
  9. 9Place dough on cutting board and knead 2 or 3 times until dough holds together.
  10. 10Using hands, press dough out to 1/2-inch thick.
  11. 11Cut out biscuits with 2-inch cutter. Reform dough scraps and cut out more biscuits until dough is gone.
  12. 12Arrange biscuits on baking sheet so they are touching each other.
  13. 13Brush tops with melted butter.
  14. 14Bake 18-21 minutes or until tops are slightly browned.
