These are great breakfast biscuits, lightly sweet with wonderfully balanced flavors. I put together pieces of three different recipes to arrive here, and I really love the result. These biscuits scored well in my house! I always bake biscuits on a pizza stone, which I preheat as the oven preheats. I'm not sure how this affects baking time, so if you're using a lightly greased cookie sheet, I'd recommend watching them closely after the first 10 minutes!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400' F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients down to the nutmeg.
  3. Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the dry ingredients.
  4. Mash the banana in a separate bowl, and mix the yogurt into it.
  5. Fold the banana-yogurt mixture into the dry ingredients and mix briefly. The dough will be quite loose and sticky.
  6. Turn out onto a heavily-floured board and knead about 6 times. Sprinkle with plenty of white flour to keep it from sticking to everything.
  7. Roll the dough out 3/8" to 1/2" thick, and cut into 3" rounds. Arrange with sides touching on a seasoned or lightly-greased baking sheet.
  8. Bake at 400' F for 16-19 minutes, until browned.
