Ingredients & Directions

2 c Flour* 1/2 To 2/3 cup
2 T Baking powder Cold low-fat buttermilk,
3/4 t Salt Skim milk or milk
1/2 c Apple sauce Substitute

In a larger bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Sprinkle the applesauce over the flour, and cut in with a pastry
blender until it is in bits the size of split peas. The texture
should be somewhat course.

Sprinkle 1/2 cup cold milk over the flour and applesauce, and stir it
in quickly with a fork. Add only as much of the milk as is necessary
to make the dough hold together.

Gather the dough up into a ball, working it together with your hands
very briefly, and then roll it out 1/2 inch thick on a floured board.
Cut out small rounds (about 2 1/2″ to 3″ in diameter) and place them
on a cookie sheet spritzed with Pam. If you aren’t going to put them
in the oven immediately, chill them in the refrigerator until ready
to bake.

Bake the biscuits in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for 10 to 12
minutes, or until puffed and lightly browned on top.

Makes about 15 – 20 biscuits.

* preferably, use white pastry flour. All-purpose flour or whole-wheat
pastry flour can be used, but the biscuits will be denser and less
