Baking Powder Biscuits II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
I don't usually review recipes but I was impressed with this one. I reduced the salt by half and added a teaspoon of baking soda to go with the buttermilk. I used olive oil as a healthier choice and added an egg to the liquid. The dough was soft and I left it marbled. To roll it out I sprinkled flour on top and it was easy to work with. The biscuits were light, soft and delicious.

Oil Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
Amazing. 5 stars for a healthier crust. I am trying to bake healthier and this pie crust was a hit. I used olive oil. It turned out flakey but the taste was a little bland. The second time I made it I took 1/8 cup of milk, 1/8 cup of water and beat an egg into the mixture, topping it up with water to get the 1/2 cup of liquid. I also borrowed the idea of adding 2 tsp baking powder from another recipe. I left the dough slightly marbled and rolled it between 2 layers of wax paper which worked well and made it easy to flip when rolling and transfering into the pie plate. The second time the crust was slightly flakier and the taste was not as bland. The crust turns out browner then normal but does not taste burnt.
