These biscuits come out buttery and a little crispy. They are so good and so easy and are a good addition to breakfast (think biscuits with butter and honey/jelly) or dinner.
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
Â½ teaspoon salt
Â¼ cup cold unsalted butter
1 cup milk (any kind)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a medium sized bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well with whisk or fork.
Cut the 1/2 stick butter into little pea sized pieces and then mix the pieces into the flour mixture. Using a fork, try to mash the butter pieces as you mix it together with the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs. It is okay if the outcome just looks like the same pea sized pieces of butter covered with flour.
Then pour in the milk and mix it all together. Knead the dough with your hands 8 to 10 times and then turn out onto a floured counter or cutting board. Pat it out flat with your hands until the dough is a somewhat even 3/4-inch thickness.
Turn a drinking glass upside down and cut out biscuit rounds. Put them on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 10 â€“ 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
We had this with roasted chicken, salad and watermelon.
What did the family think? What’s not to like about warm, buttery, crispy biscuits fresh out of the oven?
