Dairy Free Biscuits Made with Water (no milk).
I make a lot of dairy free recipes due to someone having a milk dairy allergy that I cook for. I hate to use recipes that call for weird kinds of milk that I never buy so I try to use water instead. Like my dairy free pancake recipe this biscuit recipe calls for water as a substitute. I think they turn out even better tasting with water!
Above are some photos of the process. We cut them pretty thick, about 1″ high. We placed them close together on the cookie sheet in rows of 2. My sister is better at making these then me so I had her help. You will have some scrap dough after cutting the biscuits out, you can smoosh it together and cut some more biscuit shapes they just won’t look as pretty.
- 2 cup all purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- ⅔ cup water
- Preheat oven to 450 F.
- Grease a baking sheet or line with nonstick baking mat.
- Mix flour, baking powder and salt together in bowl. Create a hole in the center, add vegetable oil and water. Mix until it forms a loose dough. (Don't over mix).
- Knead the dough by hand in the mixing bowl about 5 times, folding the dough over and repeating about 5 times.
- On a lightly floured surface gently pat down dough until about 1" thick. Use a biscuit cutter to cut into round circles. Place next to each other on baking sheet.
- Bake on greased cookie sheet for about 12-15 minutes or until edges are just starting to brown.
