How to Make Tea Biscuits


  • 1Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • 2Cut in shortening and butter until only pebble sized pieces remain and buttery in colour.
  • 3Add 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.
  • 4Turn out onto floured surface and gently fold over a few times until it comes together. It will be soft and slightly tacky.
  • 5Roll 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.
  • 6Cut with 2-inch biscuit cutter into rounds and place on un-greased baking sheet.
  • 7Bake for 15 minutes, until tops are golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack.
  • 8When cooled, cut horizontally in half. Add whipping cream and strawberries. ( optional, you can use any fruit you like)
