I made this for a breakfast quiche I was throwing together and it worked perfect!!! Stop buying the pre-made stuff because now you can make it from scratch!

Can I use baking powder instead of baking soda?

You can absolutely substitute the two. What you need to know is that you should simply use three times the amount of baking powder as you would baking soda. If a recipe calls for a teaspoon of baking soda, use three teaspoons of baking powder instead.

Can I use self rising flour in stead of all-purpose?

Self-rising flour is all-purpose flour that already has baking powder and salt added. For the purpose of this recipe, we recommend all-purpose so that we can be exact with the other ingredients to get the outcome we want.

With a pastry tool, cut in the butter to the dry ingredients until mixture appears to look like little balls. If you don’t have a pastry tool, like this one, then just use two forks to mix and “cut”.
