Perfectly Fluffy Vegan Biscuits
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 6 tablespoons Earth Balance (vegan margarine), cut into medium sized pieces
- 3/4 cup non-dairy milk
1. Preheat your oven to 400. In a medium bowl combine the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder.
2. With your fingers or a pastry cutter cut in the Earth Balance pieces until they are the size of peas.
3. Take 1 tablespoon of milk out of the 3/4 cup and set it aside. Pour the rest of the milk over the flour and stir gently with a spatula until it comes together.
4. Pour the dough onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it’s not super sticky. Pat it out gently to 1″ thick. Fold the dough over itself and pat it out to 1″ thick again. Repeat twice to fold 3 times. This needs to be done very gently! Pat it like you’re playing patty cake with a baby. No smooshing. After the third fold pat the dough to 3/4″ thick, and cut out your biscuits. Don’t forget to pat together your scraps to get 1 or 2 more! Repeat until you’re out of dough. With a normal sized cutter (2-2 1/2 inches) I get 8.
