I hope you all had a good Irish meal yesterday. As for us, we had Irish Stew and these really yummy yogurt biscuits that my Mother in law made. Usually we have soda bread on St. Patrick’s day, but these biscuits were a really nice alternative to the dense Irish quick bread. I’ve been wanting more biscuits since yesterday so I whipped up a batch today, but I didn’t have any plain yogurt. I did, however, have honey Greek yogurt and let me tell you what: It worked great.
If you have plain yogurt on hand , that works great. If not, try it with the honey yogurt.
Eat it with jam and butter. We had ours with boysenberry jam and it was loverly.
2 C. Flour
1/4 t. Baking Soda
1 T. Baking Powder
3/4 t. Salt
1/4 C.(4 T.) Butter, chilled
1 C. Honey Greek Yogurt
2 T. Milk
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
Add the butter to the flour mixture and cut it in until it is completely blended.
Add the yogurt and the milk to the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
Place the dough on a parchment lined cookie sheet and shape into a mound.
Pat the dough into a 1″ high rectangle. Score the top of the dough once lengthwise and 3 times width wise to make 8 large sections that can be broken off when baked.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the top is nicely browned.
Remove and serve immediately.
