Please accept the awards!

To celebrate my awards I made these lovely biscuits.
These biscuits, low in fat are a perfect snack for tea time. Apple dip goes well with it. I made these biscuits in two batches. In the second batch I sprinkled demerara sugar over the biscuits before baking them in the oven. That is how ever optional and I have not included that in the recipe.
I am sending these to the ongoing event Cakes n Cookies at Sara's Corner.

Here is the recipe for "Buttermilk Biscuits"

This recipe makes 25 biscuits.


1 ½ cup AP Flour.
1 tsp salt.
2 tbsp sugar.
1 tsp baking powder.
½ tsp baking soda.
4 tbsp butter or margarine at room temperature.
½ cup + 2 tbsp butter milk.


Preheat the oven at 200 C. Grease a baking sheet and dust lightly with flour. Set aside.
In a large bowl sift all the dry ingredients. Add margarine and mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually pour in the buttermilk and knead it into a soft dough. Divide it into two halves. Roll both of them out to about .5 cm thickness.
Stamp out 5 cm rounds with a cookie cutter. Place them in the prepared tray and bake for about 12-15 mins, or until golden.

Serve warm or at room temperature with apple dip.

 The recipe of apple dip follows.
Apple Dip.


1 green cooking apple.
1 tbsp granulated sugar.
1 tsp cinnamon powder.


Grate apple with a grater. Transfer in a microwave safe bowl. Add sugar and cinnamon powder and stir. Microwave for 2 mins. Serve cold.
Sandwich apple dip between two biscuits or just spread on one.
Have a bite with a hot cup of tea!!
