This recipe for molasses biscuits won the blue ribbon at the North Waterford World's Fair Biscuit Bake-Off in 1994.

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix the dry ingredients together. Cut in the margarine, then add the molasses and yogurt and stir until mixed. The dough will be soft.
