Light & Fluffy Biscuits

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/light_fluffy_biscuits.html

A combination of all-purpose flour and cake flour produces a light, tender low-fat biscuit. Serve with dinner or for breakfast or tea with fruit preserves.

10 biscuits | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or coat lightly with cooking spray.
  2. Stir together flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender or two table knives, cut in cream cheese and butter until pea-sized lumps form. Stir in buttermilk with a fork. Gather the dough into a ball and knead it several times in the bowl until smooth.
  3. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Pat into a smooth, 1/2-inch-thick disk. With a 3-inch cutter, cut out rounds. Repeat with dough scraps until you have 10 biscuits. Brush tops with fat-free milk. Place on the baking sheet and bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
