Navid: If you cozy up to any table this holiday season, you're likely to be presented with a big basket of hot, fluffy biscuits just begging to be buttered and devoured. And while those are definitely delicious, you may regret them when your belly is bumping the table a few minutes later. Here's an alternative that keeps the fat and carbohydrates to a minimum while maximizing the flavor.
All-Purpose Flour: 2 Cups Skim Milk: 1 Cup Baking Powder: 4 Teaspoons Salt: 1 Teaspoon Butter: 1/4 Cup
1. First, preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
3. Wash your hands with cold water. Cut the butter into small pieces (8 or more) and blend into the flour mixture with your fingers. Continue until the mixture looks like bread crumbs.
4. Stir in the milk. Kneed your newly created dough gently on a floured surface and roll to a thickness of about 3/4 inches.
5. Cut the dough into 12 pieces with a biscuit cutter.
6. Place the pieces on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden.
