A Cool Thanksgiving Morning

This morning I discovered we didn't have any bread or bread like things for brekkies and because it was cool outside I wanted to make something in the oven. Searching through my recipes for something that didn't require yeast or hours of proofing I found Sarah Kramer's recipe for biscuits and decided to give them a try. After a quick mix and a short 8 minutes in the oven we had really warm, yummy, flakey Southern-styled biscuits for breakfast. Having never tried to make biscuits before I was unsure how they would turn out, but we were surprised with a tasty breakfast. 
  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour 
  • 3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¾ Teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ Cup Margarine
  • ¾ Cups Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Whole Wheat flour for dusting
1.Preheat oven to 450˚.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. 
2.Stir in the margarine, 'milk' and vinegar until well blended. 
3.Cut dough into 6 even amounts and place into lightly oiled muffin tins, or roll dough out on a lightly floured surface and cut with large cookie cutters and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out clean.
Makes 6 large biscuits.

Note: The biscuits can be made savoury by adding any number of spices or herbs or sweet by adding honey, or sugar.
