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
tablespoons baking powder
teaspoons sugar or honey
- 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.
