greek yogurt biscuits

Instead of sour cream biscuits, I like to make Greek yogurt biscuits. Despite being very low in fat, they’re tender and fluffy. Very good with just a pat of sweet butter, or a little jam.

Makes 12 biscuits
New quantity:

Total time: 30 minutes
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup plain, low-fat Greek yogurt (I use Voskos)
1/2 cup reduced-fat milk

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the yogurt and 1/4 cup of the milk and stir with a wooden spoon until dough forms. Transfer to a lightly floured counter top.

3. Add up to 1/4 cup more milk, and just until a dough forms, to the floury bits that were left in the bowl. Add this dough to the dough on the counter.

4. Knead a few times, just until dough is smooth. It will be fairly sticky.

5. Quickly, so that the baking powder won’t lose its potency, roll the dough out, using a floured rolling pin, to 1-inch thick. Cut into 3-inch rounds. I used a biscuit cutter, but a floured drinking glass is fine.
