“Buttermilk” Biscuits

Okay, these are really not made with buttermilk, but they taste just as good. I made the apple butter and thought, “I need biscuits to put this on.” so, I found a buttermilk biscuit recipe and used vanilla rice milk instead. These turned out light, fluffy, and incredibly delicious.

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Stir together flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
Cut 1/4 cup margarine into flour mixture until crumbly.
Stir in rice milk until moistened.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll to 3/4-inch thickness.
With a round cutter or drinking glass, cut out biscuits. (I used a 2 1/2-inch cutter and got about 10 biscuits)
Place 2 tablespoons of margarine in a cast-iron skillet and place in oven until margarine is melted.
Remove pan from oven. Add biscuits and bake for 18 – 20 minutes. Brush 2 tablespoons melted margarine over the top of the baked biscuits.
