Fat-Free Baking Powder Biscuits

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Low Fat

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Flour*
  • 2 tb Baking powder
  • 3/4 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Apple sauce
  • 1/2 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 1/2 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 1/2 inch thick on a floured board. Cut out
small rounds (about 2 1/2" 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.
