september-2008-cheesy-biscuitsPreparation Time:  20 minutes                        
Cooking Time:  Approximately 15 minutes      
Serve these for breakfast with scrambled eggs and soy sausage or as an accompaniment to almost any soup.  They're also great as an alternative crust for the Broccoli and Edamame Casserole (page 184).  
2 1/3  cup unbleached white flour 
2 1/3 cup unbleached white flour
1 cup plus 2 T soy milk or organic milk
¾ cup grated soy cheddar cheese or cheddar cheese
4 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons trans fats free margarine
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Stir 2 cups of the flour, the baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a mixing bowl.  Cut in the margarine until the mixture forms coarse crumbs.  Add the milk and cheese and stir just until the mixture forms a dough.  Do not over mix.                      
Sprinkle your work surface with the remaining flour, roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/2 inch and cut out 10 biscuits with a biscuit cutter.  Arrange the biscuits so they are slightly touching one another on an ungreased baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes, or until they are nicely browned on top. Serve warm or at room temperature.     
Makes 10 biscuits
