Author Notes

flaky, buttery biscuits made with yogurt mixed with milk for when you don't have buttermilk on hand, which i never do. this gives you the same tenderness as found in the southern classic. —Fatimah Steele

  • Serves 12 biscuits
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons sugar or honey
  • 1/2 cup butter,cold
In This Recipe
  1. whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. work in the butter until pea-sized. stir together the yogurt and milk and add it to the flour mixture along with the sugar or honey, stir until dough forms. on a lightly floured surface flatten into a rectangle, then fold like a business letter, repeat 3-4 times. on the last turn roll out and cut out your biscuits being careful not to twist. place biscuit rounds in a cast iron skillet and brush with milk. bake at 425F for about 15 minutes or until golden.
