|2 cups||All-purpose flour|
|3 tablespoons||Buttermilk powder or nonfat dry milk powder|
|2 teaspoons||Baking powder|
|½ teaspoon||Baking soda|
|2 tablespoons||Homemade or purchased pesto|
In a large bowl stir together flour, buttermilk or milk powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. With a pastry cutter, cut in shortening and pesto until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center; add water all at once. Stir in just until dough clings together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently for 10 to 12 strokes. Roll or pat to ½-inch thickness. Cut with a 2½-inch biscuit cutter, dipping cutter into flour between cuts. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 450F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Makes 10 to 12 biscuits.
