In just 20 minutes — 10 minutes to prepare the dough, another 10 minutes to bake — you can proudly serve these incredibly easy & deliciously tender biscuits.

You’ll Need:

2 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
3 tsps baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
5 tbs cold butter, cut into chunks
1 cup fat free Greek yogurt
Butter
Honey

A food processor
A cutting board sprinkled with flour
An ungreased baking sheet
A drinking glass or biscuit cutter

Steps:

1. Preheat the oven to 450.

2. Blend the dry ingredients briefly in the food processor.

3. Add the butter chunks & pulse 5 times.

4. Add the yogurt & process just until the dough forms a ball.

5. Turn the dough out on to a very lightly floured cutting board.

6. Knead the dough just a few times, then flatten it to about 1/2 inch thick with your hands.

7. Use the glass or biscuit cutter to cut the biscuits; then put them on the ungreased baking sheet.

8. Recombine & flatten the scraps of dough, then cut more biscuits for the baking sheet.

9. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, until golden brown.

10. Serve immediately, with both butter and honey on the side.

Makes about a dozen biscuits.
