Ingredients

  • 2

    cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1

    Tbsp baking powder

  • 1/2

    tsp baking soda

  • 3/4

    tsp sea salt

  • 4

    Tbsp non-dairy, unsalted butter (I use Earth Balance)

  • 1

    cup unsweetened PLAIN almond milk + 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 1. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. 2. Add cold butter and use fingers or a pastry cutter to combine the two until only small pieces remain and it looks like sand. Work quickly so the butter doesn’t get too warm. 3. Make a well in the dry ingredients and, using a wooden spoon, stir gently while pouring in the almond milk mixture 1/4 cup at a time. You may not need all of it. Stir until just slightly combined – it will be sticky. 4. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, dust the top with a bit of flour and then very gently turn the dough over on itself 5-6 times – hardly kneading. 5. Form into a 1-inch thick disc, handling as little as possible. 6. Use a 1-inch thick dough cutter or a similar-shape object with sharp edges (such as a cocktail shaker) and push straight down through the dough, then slightly twist. Repeat and place biscuits on a baking sheet in two rows, making sure they just touch – this will help them rise uniformly. Gently reform the dough and cut out one or two more biscuits – you should have 7-8. 7. Next brush the tops with a bit more of melted non-dairy butter and gently press a small divot in the center using two fingers. This will also help them rise evenly, so the middle won’t form a dome. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until fluffy and slightly golden brown. Serve immediately. Let remaining biscuits cool completely before storing them in an airtight container or bag.
