Biscuits to Die For

4 cups flour
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon sugar
2/3 cup chilled non-dairy margarine plus 4 Tablespoons, melted
1 1/2 cups sour soy milk (simply add 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice to the milk and set it aside before using.)

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Cut in the 2/3 cup of chilled margarine with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the sour soy milk with a wooden spoon to form a soft dough. Knead the dough briefly on a lightly floured board. Pat the dough to 1 1/4-inches thick. Cut into 3-inch round circles and arrange with sides touching in a 9-inch square pan with melted margarine in it. Brush the tops with some of the melted margarine. Bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Makes 9 large biscuits. Warning: this definitely not low low fat but is definitely heavenly and dreamy with gravy.
