Lemon Pistachio Biscuits

I don’t really have time to bake or cook these days but if I do, it needs to be insanely easy and quick and I need to be able to shove it in my mouth leaning over the kitchen sink. I then leave whatever I haven’t eaten on the counter to be covered in ants when I come back to them like 48 hours later. It’s just how I roll these days.

I’ve had biscuits on my ‘to-do’ list for a while and I would have done them sooner if I had known how crazy easy they were. Plus you can really have some fun with experimenting with different flavours. I took a basic biscuit recipe and added lemon and pistachios.

Mix:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1/8 of a lemon*

*I was going to write ‘just the tip’ heeeyooo! No one said this was a PG13 blog!

Then mix in 4 tbsp of vegan margarine or butter and knead it with your hands until it’s nice and crumbly. Then stir in 3/4 cup of almond or soy milk. (You could use vanilla flavoured if you’re playing with different tastes!)

I had to add some more flour before putting it on the counter to knead and roll out like cookie dough. At this point I wish I had added the crushed pistachios instead of adding them on top after they were on the cookie pan since they fell off on their way to my mouth.

Use a rolling pin to make the dough about 1/4-1/2 inch thick and use a cookie cutter or the top of a water class to cut them out. Again I added some crushed pistachios but wish I had used the pin to really stick them in the dough.

I cooked them at 450 for about 15 mins and they smelled sooo good!

I know that both myself and the new family of ants in my kitchen really enjoyed them.
