Makes about 18 1 1/2 inch biscuits
Says that this tastes best right out of the oven.
1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup apple fiber
1 Tbsp Baking Powder 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup rice bran 3/4 cup evaporated skim milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, rice bran,
apple fiber, and salt. Or you could do this in a food processor. Add milk
all at once and stir until ingredients are just combined; if you are doing
this in a food processor, pulse the machine a few times just until dough
is combined. If the dough seems a little dry, sprinkle on a tablespoon of
water and work it in.
With lightly floured hands, knead the dough for 30 seconds. Then
pat and push it out until it is 1/2 inch thick. With a 1 1/2 inch biscuit
cutter, cut the dough into about 18 rounds. Set rounds on an ungreased baking
sheet. Bake for 16 minutes or until cooked through.
VARIATIONS: To make herbed bisuits, add 1 tsp dried herbs of your choice to
the dry ingredients, before adding the milk.
To make buttermilk bisbuits, use 1% fat buttermilk instead of the
evaporated milk and substitute 2 tsp baking powder, mixed with 1/2 tsp
baking soda, for the baking powder.
To make oat-bran biscuits, substitute 1 cup oat bran for the rice
bran and apple fiber.
