Ingredients

3 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
1/2 c
vegetable shortening, cold cut into 1/4 in. pieces
1/2 c
vegan butter
1/4 c
soft tofu, blended smooth
3/4 c
soy milk
As needed
whipping cream, whipped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
2
Cut in shortening and butter until only pebble sized pieces remain and buttery in colour.
3
Add tofu to liquid measure and top it up to one cup with milk. Mix together with fork and add to flour/butter mixture. Stir until just combined with fork.
4
Turn out onto floured surface and gently fold over a few times until it comes together. It will be soft and slightly tacky.
5
Roll out by hand by gently patting it down until it is uniformly 1-inch thick. Note that the less you mess around with the dough, the more tender they will be.
6
Cut with 2-inch biscuit cutter into rounds and place on un-greased baking sheet.
7
Bake for 15 minutes, until tops are golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack.
8
When cooled, cut horizontally in half. Add whipping cream and strawberries. ( optional, you can use any fruit you like)
