Yogurt Biscuits

Christine Whisenhunt


Ok, so we all know that necessity and her sister desperation, are the mothers of invention, right? Well, that's how this recipe came about. My buttermilk and milk had both become experiments in culture, and I don't mean they were traveling the world, although when I opened the containers it definitely sent my olfactory senses into outer orbit. LOL So, I had to come up with another way to make biscuits. I recall having seen biscuits made with 7up/Sprite on here, so I got to searching. I found a couple, but they called for sour cream. No prob, I have sou....no wait, used the last of it on tacos a few days ago. SHOOT! Now what????? Hmmmmm....is that plain yogurt I spy? YES! Check use by date...SCORE! Still good! Ok, here goes. Worst case scenario, if they don't turn out, they go in the circular file. (Y'all know what that is right? The trash. LOL) So, I gave it a whirl and they were good! I took Dianna Casteel's Poyeye's Biscuits recipe and Cindy DeRouen's Ruby's Restaurant Biscuits recipe and used parts from both and tweeked it a little as well. So, thanks girls! I now have a fall back recipe when there is no buttermilk, milk, or sour cream in the house and want a biscuit! LOL Even hubby, who is the world's pickiest eater, and that's no exaggeration, said he would eat them again. That's high praise from him, seriously, you have no idea! LOL So, I thought I'd share with y'all too, in case you ever find yourself dairy challenged and hankering for a biscuit as well! LOL Enjoy!

**Hey, I was just thinking...(Dangerous, I know!) I wonder how flavored yogurt would work. Hmmmm... Imagine the possibilities! Strawberry banana, blackberry, raspberry, peach... I just may have to try it and see! I'll let you know. If you try it first, let me know!**

Note: These are supposed to be rolled out and cut, but I was lazy and just made giant drop biscuits, as you can see in my pic. At least now we all know they work both ways! LOL Although, they were pretty crumbly, so I would recommend rolling them out. I know I will next time. And, it made six huge ones, even though there are only three shown in my pic.
