Sun-Dried Tomato Semolina Biscuits

Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2000

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

Ingredients

  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 10 sun-dried tomatoes, packed without oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup semolina flour or yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chilled butter or stick margarine, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Combine boiling water and sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl; let stand for 15 minutes. Drain and chop.

Preheat oven to 425°.

Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine all-purpose flour and next 7 ingredients (all-purpose flour through pepper) in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. (Flour mixture and butter can also be combined in a food processor; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal.) Add tomatoes and buttermilk; stir just until moist.

Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface; knead lightly 5 times. Roll dough to a 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until golden.
