yeah, i know what you’re thinking. enough with the baking recipes!  i promise this will be the last one for a while.

well, actually i can’t promise that since there is a high probability of an upcoming post.  but i guess it’s more documenting  our meager attempt to bake bread. i’m sure you’d love that post.

but alas, because i love these berry tea biscuits…and they go great with a vanilla roobios soy tea latte…i couldn’t resist!

on a separate note, i warned you i was on a baking rampage. but seriously, these are pretty darn good.

berry tea biscuits

2 3/4 cups brown rice flour
1 1/2 cups plus 1 tbsp garbanzo bean flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup canola oil
1 cup organic whole cane sugar (we used 3/4 cup agave syrup instead)
1 cup rice milk (unsweetened)
1 cup berries
turbinado sugar, for sprinkling on top of the biscuits (we didn’t use this on ours)

1. combine the brown rice flour, garbanzao bean flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and orange zest in a large bowl. in the bowl of standing mixer (we just used a hand mixer), fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the canola oil and sugar (or agave syrup) until well mixed. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture and rice milk alternately, a little at a time, until well mixed, about 3 minutes. chill the dough for at least 3 hours or overnight. (we’ve found that overnight is significantly better to work with the dough)

2. preheat oven to 360 degrees

3. place baseball sized balls of dough onto a greased or parchment lined baking sheet, spaced 2 inches apart. lightly flatten the balls with the palm of your hand.

4. place 4 berries on top of each disc, pressing them in gently. sprinkle the turbinado sugar on top. bake until golden and firm to the touch, about 30 mins.

as you’ve probably seen, the ingredients really are the same as is the need to chill the dough overnight, but this one tastes a bit different than the scone recipes. so far, our favorite is still the blueberry cinnamon scones. but you may just have to bake some for yourself and find out which one you really enjoy!
