2 cups of all purpose flour
3/4 cup of low fat buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
4 tablespoons of margarine
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir this mixture with a fork until all of the ingredients are evenly combined. Set aside for now.
Melt the margarine in a sauce pan. Now combine the melted margarine and the buttermilk in a small mixing bowl. Stir until blended.
Add this margarine and buttermilk mixture to the flower mixture slowly. Stir with a fork while combining. After all of the margarine and buttermilk mixture has been added to the flour mixture, begin kneading with floured covered hands until well blended.
Place the dough on a lightly floured counter top or cutting board and pat down into a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into 3″ round biscuits.
Prepare a cookie sheet by lightly coating sheet with canola oil.
Place the cut biscuits on the prepared cookie sheet.
Brush the tops of each biscuit with buttermilk and then place in your preheated oven. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.
Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
