These Vanilla Biscuits are soft and chewy with a light and airy crumb. An irresistible sweet treat infused with the fragrance of vanilla extract and Vanilla Greek yogurt. This recipe is easy to prepare and requires minimal pantry ingredients. Combine wet and dry ingredients mixing them with a plastic spatula to form a cookie dough. Use a rolling pin and a pastry cutter to create a rectangular biscuit and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Before serving, dust these biscuits with confectioner’s sugar for added sweetness and decoration. This recipe yields two dozen cookies and makes an impressive addition to any cookie tray. It is a delicious breakfast biscuit or afternoon delight, especially when accompanied with a coffee or tea.

Preparation Time: 40 minutes

Baking Time: 15–20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 2 dozen

Ingredients:

1–1 ½ cup all-purpose flour

⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 cup Greek Vanilla Yogurt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Pinch salt

Confectioner’s sugar (for dusting)

  3. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, olive oil, and vanilla extract. Stir until creamy.
  4. Add yogurt and mix until smooth.
  5. Pour 1 cup of the flour mixture into the wet ingredient bowl. Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly blended to form a cookie dough. Add the remaining ½ cup of flour slowly to achieve dough-like consistency for rolling.
