Fatfree baking powder biscuits

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Flour*
2 tablespoons Baking powder
¾ teaspoon Salt
½ cup Apple sauce
½ To 2/3 cup
Cold low-fat buttermilk,
Skim milk or milk
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 ½ 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 ½ inch thick on a floured board.

Cut out small rounds (about 2½" 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 fluffy.
