This weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie is the Baking Powder Biscuits which are located on pages 211-212 in Baking With Julia. Like any biscuit recipe the key is COLD ingredients and light hands aka do not over handle the dough. You want flakes of fat in the dough and you do not want it to melt. So the least amount of time you handle the dough the best. I ended up making this recipe Vegan because it was VERY easy to do and I am gearing up for Vegan Month of Food (VeganMoFo) in September. I had some Almond Milk on hand so I just substituted that for the milk and the recipe was already using vegetable shortening.
The recipe is suppose to make 14 two-inch biscuits. Well I like a BIG biscuit so it only made 6 for me. They turned out great. I ended up splitting them in half and loading them up with a vegan chicken patty for my very own version of a chicken biscuit. They were very yummy.
