Tree Top


Low Fat Biscuits


124 g Tree Top Apple Sauce

250 g flour

9 g baking powder

8 g granulated sugar

1.20 g baking soda

1.50 g salt

1.20 g cinnamon

103 g vegetable shortening

81.60 g buttermilk



Preheat oven to 450 F.

In medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture.

In a small mixing bowl, combine buttermilk and applesauce; add to dry mixture all at once. Using a fork, stir just until mixture is moistened.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Quickly knead dough by gently folding and pressing 10 to 12 strokes, or until dough is nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll dough to 1/2" thick and cut with a biscuit cutter.

Place biscuits 1-inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove biscuits from baking sheet and serve warm.

Makes 10 to 12 biscuits.
