Biscuit King's signature breakfast biscuits! These are oil based rather than shortening.
|2||cup||all purpose white flour|
|1/2||tsp||cream of tartar|
|1/4||cup||light tasting olive oil|
* for vegan biscuits substitute same amount of water
Preheat a conventional oven to 450°. Note, convection ovens do not quite produce the same result.
Spray baking sheets with PAM.
In a large bowl mix dry ingredients. Add liquid ingredients and then stir with a fork until all is blended in a large soft dough ball.
Place the dough ball on a well floured dough board and gently kneed until the exterior is smooth, folding over two or three times. Roll until about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter. Place on the baking sheets about 1 inch apart. Repeat with the remaining dough. The last dough left, less than a full biscuit, can be formed into the shaope of a bone!
Note, mark any vegan biscuits and place both on the same sheet as the regular biscuits. The vegan biscuits do not brown as soon as the non-vegan so it is hard to tell when the vegan biscuits are baked by appearance.
Bake at 450° for 9 1/2 minutes or until lightly brown. Note different ovens and different racks will bake at different rates. Rely on the color rather than the time.
Serve hot from the oven!
