Can I use water instead of milk in biscuits?
You can use water in most baking recipes that call for milk. Use 1 cup of water and 1-1/2 teaspoons of butter for every 1 cup of milk called for in the recipe. The extra butter will help your baked goods stay moist.

Use ½ cup half and half and ½ cup water as a substitute for 1 cup milk. Water: If the recipe calls for a small amount of milk like ¼ cup or less, water could work. You can also try adding 1 tablespoon melted butter per 1 cup water to add more fat: but do so at your own risk!
