Diabetic Tea Biscuits

biscuits-1I have been asked what changes to make to the Prize Winning Tea Biscuits recipe to make it suitable for those who have diabetes. Since I am not an expert in safely changing ingredients to make sure the recipe is right, here is the proper recipe safe for diabetics.

Diabetic Tea Biscuits:

2 cups of  flour

3 teaspoons of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1/4 cup Margarine

1/2 cup Lowfat milk

  • Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cut in the margarine with a fork or pastry blender. Add the milk. Stir to make a soft dough.
  • Roll out on a lightly floured surface until 1/2 inch thick.
  • Cut into biscuit shapes. (Or divide dough in 12 balls, roll in your hands and pat lightly to flatten.)
  • Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425 F for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Hope this recipe works out for you – if you are going make variations, try adding cranberries and lemon zest. I tried that and the biscuits were delicious! Please send me your comments and suggestions – your input is always appreciated!
