Makes about 15 - 20 biscuits.



  1. In a larger bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Sprinkle the applesauce over the flour, and cut in with a pastry blender until it is in bits the size of split peas.
  3. The texture should be somewhat course.
  4. Sprinkle ½ cup cold milk over the flour and applesauce, and stir it in quickly with a fork.
  5. Add only as much of the milk as is necessary to make the dough hold together.
  6. Gather the dough up into a ball, working it together with your hands very briefly, and then roll it out ½ inch thick on a floured board.
  7. Cut out small rounds (about 2 ½" to 3" in diameter) and place them on a cookie sheet spritzed with PAM. If you aren't going to put them in the oven immediately, chill them in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
  8. Bake the biscuits in a preheated oven at 450°F for 10 to 12 minutes, or until puffed and lightly browned on top.


  1. Preferably, use white pastry flour. All-purpose flour or whole-wheat pastry flour can be used, but the biscuits will be denser and less fluffy.
