Whenever we set out to bake bread or, in this case, biscuits, I can totally hear Ronnie Cammareri from Moonstruck, “They say bread is life. And I bake bread, bread, *bread*. And I sweat and shovel this stinkin’ dough in and out of this hot hole in the wall, and I should be *so* happy! Huh, sweetie?”
We can only hope that Will should never be so serious.
FLOUR – 2 Cups
BAKING POWDER – 1 Tablespoon
SUGAR – 1 Teaspoon
KOSHER SALT – 1 Tablespoon Divided
SOY MILK – 3/4 Cup
DAIRY FREE MARGARINE – 1/2 Stick
ONION – 3 Tablespoons Diced
GARLIC SALT – 1/2 Teaspoon
OREGANO – 1/2 Teaspoon
You will need: Measuring tools; 1 Mixing Bowl; Wire Whisk; Spatula; Rolling Pin; Plastic Cups or Biscuit Cutter; Pie Plate; Knife for cutting & dicing – keep away from little hands
Preheat your oven to 375°
In your mixing bowl, combine Flour, Baking Powder, Sugar, one teaspoon of the Kosher salt and stir with the wire whisk. Slowly pour the Soy Milk into the mixture, stirring with the spatula until the dough comes together. The dough should not be super sticky. Lightly flour your work area and roll the dough out. Knead (or in Will’s case punch) the dough for about a minute or two until soft and then roll it with your rolling pin until it is approximately 1/4-1/2″ thick. Take your 1/2 stick of margarine and lightly grease the pie plate.
Using your plastic cup or biscuit cutter start to cut out rounds of the dough–We use a plastic cup because the dough is thick and dense and the cup allows us to apply more pressure. Once the rounds are complete, cut them into quarters and add them to the pie plate — a little crowding is okay… even though Will hates elevators.
Melt the Dairy Free Margarine and brush over the plated dough triangles. Add the Onion, Garlic Salt, Oregano and the remaining Kosher Salt and put’em in the oven for about 25-30 minutes or until a little golden.
And the NOSH – Did Will eat it? Yes. After I ate about 1/2 the plate he caught on that the lumps were something just shy of heaven… I kid you not.
