  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! "Light Spread"
  • 1 cup milk I used 1%


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, sugar, salt, and cream of tartar. Stir with spoon until combined.
  3. Next, drop in butter spread by the tablespoon in different areas throughout the bowl. Using a pastry blender (or with clean hands), mix in butter spread until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (If using your hands, rub mixture together between hands to help break up butter spread and incorporate with the flour.)
  4. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, and add in milk all at once.
  5. Using a fork, stir just until mixture is moistened.
  6. Place dough onto a floured surface. Knead dough for 5-10 strokes or just until dough holds together.
  7. Pat dough down until 3/4 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or glass cup, cut dough into 2 1/2 inch circles.
  8. Place dough circles 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove biscuits from pan immediately after baking and serve warm.
