This recipe is very similar to the Betty Crocker recipe for baking powder biscuits but by using oil instead of shortening, a lot of fat is cut out. I used olive oil like another reviewer because it is what I had. I also didn't have buttermilk so I used soy milk with about a tablespoon of lime juice. Delicious!

These turned out quite nice - not flaky/greasy like southern US biscuits, but light and soft like Canadian biscuits. I ended up with 24 small biscuits.

Very good, easy recipe. I did these as drop biscuits as the dough did seem too moist to roll out. I also substituted half of the flour for whole wheat, and then added a pinch of sugar and some grated parmiggiano. These would work well as easy herb biscuits too. I baked on a stone pan and they came out perfect - browned on the outside and moist inside. Note: if you like heavy, traditional butter biscuits, this may not be for you - but I prefer the lighter (and healthier!) texture that these produced.
