Biscuits and Jam

Biscuits and Jam

This morning we had a 9am planning meeting so I decided to make some biscuits to go with the berry preserves we made.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or whole wheat flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cold applesauce
  • 1 1/4 cup super cold almond milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°
  2. Mix together flour, baking powder, and sea salt in a medium-size bowl.
  3. Mix together milk and applesauce in a small-size bowl. Make sure the milk and applesauce are really cold.
  4. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and slowly pour the milk into the well. Mix with a spatula or hands until just combined. The dough will be a bit sticky but still pliable. Don’t overmix the dough or biscuits will be tough. Add additional flour if dough is too sticky.
  5. Flour your hands and dust the countertop with flour. Pat the dough out and cut out 8 biscuits (using a lightly floured cookie cutter or the rim of a glass).
  6. Transfer the biscuits to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until fluffy and slightly golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before transferring to a plate.

Note: We made two biscuits with the left over dough and stuffed them with currants.
