Basic Yogurt Biscuits

Basic Yogurt Biscuits

These are mildly sweet simple biscuits made using yogurt. Serve with maple syrup, jam, or occasionally with sausage gravy.

Ingredients: 16 small 5cm diameter biscuits

Cake flour
250 g
Baking powder
1 tablespoon
Baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
1 teaspoon
a small amount
70 g
Plain yogurt
200 g


1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Mix the floury ingredients together well in a bowl.
2. Cut up the butter that's still cold right out of the refrigerator into small dices.
3. Put the butter in a bowl, and mix with the flour while mashing the dice with the back of a fork, until the four-butter mixture is crumbly.
4. Add the yogurt little by little and fold it in. Bring the dough together. It's fine if it's sticky.
5. Put the dough on a generously dusted work surface. Dust a rolling pin with flour also, and roll the dough out 1 cm thick. Fold it in half to make it 2cm thick.
6. Cut out round shapes from the dough using a cookie cutter or a glass. I used a 5cm diameter tea cup. Dip the rim of the cup or cutter in flour to prevent the dough from sticking to it.
7. Line a baking sheet with kitchen parchment paper, put the biscuits on and bake for about 7 minutes.
8. When the tops become browned they're done. You can eat them as is, or with maple syrup or jam on the side!
9. Serve the biscuits American Country style with lots of sausage gravy, Recipe ID: 735416! Please give it a try - it's worth it!
10. You can vary these by kneading cheese or chocolate into the dough. This is a very variable basic biscuit dough.
