WHOLE WHEAT BISCUITS
~ Tiffany/Eat at Home & Sonlight Forums
2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 t. salt
heaping T. baking powder
5 T. butter, softened
1 c. milk
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or fork. Stir in the milk.
Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Fold it over several times, then pat it out with your hands, about 1/2 inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter or small glass dipped in flour to cut the biscuits. Place on a cookie sheet
Bake ten minutes. Makes about 15 drop biscuits.
Notes: I refuse to make rolled biscuits, but that's the only way Tiffany included on her site. So, I tried them as drop biscuits. Not only is that far less work, but they taste fantastic! I'm not sure how many rolled biscuits this recipe would make, so if you do it that way, then please let me know and I'll add that info to this post.
