Herbed Biscuits

So yummy to serve with soup or stew!  My husband has a cold and I thought some old-fashioned comfort food would help him feel looked-after.

2 C all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp fine sea salt
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried basil
1 stick (1/4 C) Earth Balance shortening
3/4 C soy milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Preheat over to 450 F.  Sift flour, baking powder and salt into large mixing bowl.  Stir in seasonings.  With your stand mixer (if you don't have one, get one!) on low, mix in shortening (cut into small pieces) slowly, until the mixture resembles coarse meal.  Pour vinegar into milk and ass to flour mixture, still on low.  mix until a dough-ball forms and it is pulling away from sides of bowl.  Turn out onto floured surface and roll out to 1/2" thickness.  Cut into desired shapes and bake on lightly oiled pans for 12 - 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Makes roughly 12 biscuits.
