Vegitarian Drop Biscuits for One or Two
MomsRetro Easy No Milk, No Egg,
This is a simple vegetarian, eggless, milkless biscuit recipe you can
whip up in
your toaster oven!
Biscuits for One or Two
You don't need biscuit mix and you don't need to make a lot; just
enough for one or two. Of course, you can double this recipe to
make even more of Mom's biscuit-y goodness.
1 Cup Flour
2 TSP. Baking Powder
1/2 TSP. Salt
3 TBS. Shortening (margarine or butter or oil)
1/3 Cup Water
Use a fork or pastry cutter to mix the dry ingredients first; flour,
baking powder and salt.
Add in shortening and water. If you are using butter the pastry
cutter will help you "cut in" or mash the cold butter into little tiny
bits of flavor. Keep mixing until the dough wants to stay
together in a ball.
Drop by heaping tablespoons (or forkfulls) onto an ungreased baking
Bake at 450 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
Makes about 6 - 8 biscuits.
For best results try using an insulated baking sheet to reduce chances
of burned biscuits!
Easy Eggless Biscuit Variations:Garlic Cheese Biscuits: Add 1/2 teaspoon of
Powder and up to 1 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese. Add a
extra color with a dash of paprika.
Note: if you use Garlic Salt you should
remove the 1/2 teaspoon
of salt or your biscuits may be too salty!
Rosemary Biscuits: Add 1/2 TSP. finely
Olive Oil Basil Biscuits: Just use 3
tablespoons of Olive Oil
in the recipe above.
Add a 1/2 teaspoon Sweet Basil.
A 1/2 teaspoon of Powdered Garlic tastes good in this version too!
Biscuit Recipe Substitutions:
If you have milk, use 1/3 Cup Milk instead of water for a creamier
Use butter or margarine instead of oil for a richer biscuit.
