Olive Oil Biscuits
25th Jan 2021
¼ cup Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 teaspoons of Tuscan Herb Infused Olive Oil for savory, or Mandarin Olive Oil for sweet.
2 cups all purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
½ cup Greek yogurt
½ cup 2% or whole milk
Mix yogurt and milk in a small bowl. Add to the flour and mix slowly with a spoon until everything is incorporated. If it is too dry, add a bit of milk. The dough will be sticky and soft.
Add some flour to your hands and surface of a cutting board or clean counter area and roll to shape dough in a ball. Spread out on a surface, and fold again a couple of times. Pat out so thickness is about 1 inch, using a round cookie cutter or the opening of a small glass cup cut in 2 - 2 ½ inch circles.
Place on a baking pan, one slightly touching the other, bake for about 15-20 minutes until golden.
Serve warm and slather with local honey or jam.
