Super versatile drop biscuits that I love because they don't require unsalted butter or buttermilk. Easy!
2 cups Flour
1-½ Tablespoon Baking Powder
2 teaspoons Sugar
½ teaspoons Cream Of Tartar
1 teaspoon Salt
½ cups Butter, Softened
1 cup Milk
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt. Add the softened butter and mix until it forms coarse crumbs. Add the milk and stir just until mixed. Place by spoonfuls (about 1/4 cup to make 15 biscuits) onto a parchment covered sheet pan. Bake until puffed and golden, about 15 minutes.
1-2 teaspoons of herbs (dill is my favorite), or
1 cup shredded cheese - 3/4 in the dough, 1/4 on top
Makes 15 biscuits
1/3 cup oatmeal
3 Tbsp. cornmeal
1 1/2 cups boiling water
3 Tbsp. butter or vegetable oil
3 Tbsp. molasses
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1/3 cup dry milk
3 Tbsp. gluten
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. dry yeast
Add oatmeal and cornmeal to heat-proof bowl. Pour in boiling water, stirring to prevent lumps.
Let the mixture cool for ten minutes. Stir, pour it into the bread pan, and add the rest of the ingredients in the order given.
1 1/2 cups warm water (not above 115 degrees)
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp honey
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/3 cup gluten
2 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp salt
Add all ingredients to bowl in order listed. Mix well - approx. 5 minutes
Let rise in mixer at least 1 hour (cover bowl with towel)
Mix again for 1 minute
Transfer dough to greased bread pan (9x5)
Let rise 30 minutes (covered)
Bake at 350 for 28 minutes
1 package active dry yeast (2 teaspoons)
1 cup warm water (105° to 115°, no more)
3 cups all-purpose or bread flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus a little for coating
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Set aside.
By hand: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the olive oil and yeast mixture into it. Stir until it begins to form a ball, then turn it out onto a clean, floured surface and knead for about 4 or 5 minutes.
In a mixer: Using a dough hook, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Add the liquid ingredients and mix on low until the dough begins to clump around the dough hook. Remove and knead as above.
Lightly oil the mixing bowl, put dough in, and let rise for one hour. Punch dough down and knead a few minutes. Use a roller to flatten it for the pizzas.
Makes (2) 12" pizzas.
Can freeze dough.
