Flaky Oat BiscuitsPosted: October 30, 2012
…my very first biscuit recipe. Created by me!
Well, sort of.
I started with a biscuit recipe by Tyler Florence then made a few changes and then made a few more.
The changes usually occur when I don’t have an ingredient then substitute one or another item.
The biscuits that resulted from this were light yet substantial, flaky yet hardy. Really, the best biscuit I’ve made and tasted, ever!
They’re simple to make for a leisurely weekend breakfast. Warm and fresh straight from the oven.
Flaky Rolled Oat Biscuits (makes 6)
1 C rolled oats ground in a processor
1 C cake flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 T sugar
1 stick unsalted butter – frozen
1/2 C milk
2 T plain yogurt
Process: Combine all dry ingredients. Add the butter using a cheese grater and mix until the butter and flour mixture resembles small peas. Mix the milk and yogurt and add to the flour mixture. Turn this mix onto a floured surface and knead a few times. Cut into desired shapes and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 12-15 minutes.
Try some apple jam on them for a light sweet touch!
