thyme and lime yogurt biscuits

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, these biscuits have a hint of the lime and a hint of the thyme. Just enough to make them interesting, without being over-powering. Perfect to go with that corned beef and cabbage you are surely making this weekend (I know my husband is).

Thyme and Lime Yogurt Biscuits
Makes 10-16, adapted from the Kitchn

  • 2 cups bread flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • pinch of salt1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance spread (or butter)
  • 1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/8 cup fresh thyme, leaves pulled from woody stems
  • 1/8 cup lime zest

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. In a food processor, add dry mixture and Earth Balance and pulse until combined. (You can also pinch the ingredients together with your fingers if you prefer.)
  3. Gently stir in yogurt, thyme and lime with a spoon.
  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead 10 times. Press out the dough until it is about 3/4 inch thick. Cut out biscuits with a glass or biscuit/cookie cutter, and repeat until all the dough is shaped.
  5. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 7 to 9 minutes at 450.
  6. *Note: Earth Balance spread contains salt, so if you're using unsalted butter, increase the salt measurement to 1 teaspoon.
