Beaten Biscuits

The proper texture for this bread lies between a traditional biscuit and a cracker, which a food processor helps to achieve.

Cooking Light MAY 2007

  • Yield: 2 dozen (serving size: 1 biscuit)

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 11 1/4 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening, chilled
  • 1/2 cup cold 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/3 cup ice water

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a food processor; pulse 4 times. Add shortening; pulse 6 times or until well blended. Add milk and 1/3 cup ice water; process 1 1/2 minutes. (Dough should have a shiny appearance.) Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.

Uncover dough; roll to about 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with a 2-inch round cutter. (Reroll scraps.) Place dough circles on a baking sheet. Pierce tops of dough circles with a fork. Bake at 400° for 18 minutes or until lightly browned.
