I made these biscuits last night, I used this recipe here as my guideline, because it was the only one I could find that didn't use a ton of butter and buttermilk and cream.. I was so pleased that they turned out so good, light and flaky and full of flavor. I could eat these biscuits everyday.
Creative Delicious Fairly Healthy Biscuit Recipe
2 cups flour ( feel free to experiment, as long as most of the flour is wheat. for example i used 1/2 c besan flour last night)
2 1/2 t baking powder
optional - 1 t garlic powder/ 1 t paprika/ 1 T chopped fresh rosemary (or 1 t dried) or other tasty herb
1/2 t salt
1/2 t mustard ( any kind, but i like Dijon)
3 T butter
2/3 c cheese ( mix it up! i used a combo of Swiss and Parmesean last night, next time i'm using a sharp cheddar)
3/4 cup milk ( a maybe a pinch more when your rolling the dough , feel it out) ( oh ya and a bit to brush on the tops before you bake)
Preheat oven to 400
Mix dry ingredints well. Cut the butter in, i like to used 2 butter knives for this and just work t into the flour mixture.
Then add the cheese, mustard and milk, mix until it forms a dough, then turn out onto a floured work surface and knead it a bit. Depending on the type of cheese / flour you used you may need to add more milk or flour, so just adjust accordingly. roll out 3/4 inch thick. Break out the cookie cutters and make heart or animal shapped biscuits, or jus use a small glass upside down to make circle biscuits.
place on a lightly buttered pan ( i just ran a stick of butter over the surface), and brush the tops with milk ( used a tiny bit on each and just used my finger to spread. easy)
Set the timer for 12 minutes. Check the biscuits then for the perfect golden color. It may take up to 17 minutes. Stand there and wait for them eagerly.
Serve at once and try to leave some for later too! You'll be glad you did!]]>
