Light and Fluffy Biscuits

Light and Fluffy Biscuits created by Annacia

If you like biscuits, I am sure you will like this one. I can't tell you how many batches I baked to come up with this recipe. I wanted to make a light, fluffy biscuit that didn't choke you on the way down and I finally achieved my goal. They are great with gravy.

    I used water instead of milk and 1/4 C applesauce with 1/2 tsp for every egg in order to make this vegan, and it worked surprisingly well. I usually get pretty disappointed when I adapt things for the sake of veganism, but they turned out great with a nice color and a good rise!

    Epic fail as usual. Do not know what I did wrong. I will just buy them from the grocery store from now on. I do not think it is the recipe just me. LOL

    I have tried to copy one of your recipes on a 3 x 5 format but selecting that size, the recipe will not print on that selection. Could you please tell me how to correct the 3 x 5 request?
