Reduced Sodium Biscuits are similar to biscuits made from Bisquick® baking mix. The results are moist, crumbly biscuits with about 50% less sodium.

Substitutions

  1. Use buttermilk instead of water and buttermilk powder.
  2. Use butter for all or part of the shortening.

Nutrition Information

This recipe makes 12 dropped or rolled and cut biscuits using a 2 1/2 inch (6.4 cm) biscuit cutter. You can make fewer thicker biscuits or smaller biscuits using a 2-inch (5 cm) biscuit cutter.

Using salted butter adds about 80 mg of sodium per biscuit.

Cook’s Tip

To reduce preparation time, combine all dry ingredients and shortening and refrigerate until ready to make biscuits.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (250 g) all-purpose or pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons (18 g) buttermilk powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) kosher salt (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 cup (95 g) vegetable shortening
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup (160 to 180 ml ) cold water

Method of Preparation

Step 1

Place rack in center of oven and preheat to 450°F (230°C, Gas Mark 8).

Step 2

Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Use a fork to cut in the shortening until there are no large lumps.

Step 3

Add water and stir until there is no dry flour. Drop by heaping tablespoon onto an uncreased baking sheet. For rolled biscuits, transfer dough to a lightly floured surface, knead 4 or 5 times, roll or pat to about 1/2 inch (1.2 cm thick) and cut with 2 1/2 inch (6.4 cm) biscuit cutter.

Step 4

Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until browned. Serve immediately.
