Big Buttermilk Biscuits

Serve these big and tender biscuits hot from the oven and watch them disappear. You will need a circular cookie cutter 4 inches in diameter. Serve with Lemon Honey Butter.
Makes 8 biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup nonfat buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet with vegetable spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Drizzle the oil over the mixture and blend it in with your fingers. Add the buttermilk, stirring to form a stiff dough. Use a little additional flour, if necessary, to prevent the dough from sticking.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out so that it is large enough to be cut into 8 biscuits. Cut out the biscuits and place them on the baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes and serve hot from the oven.
