- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- heaping Tbs. baking powder
- about 5 Tbs. butter, softened
- nearly 1 cup of milk *I used buttermilk because I had some leftover.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork. Stir in the milk.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Fold it over several times and 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 or baking stone and bake for 10 minutes.
I used a baking stone and they turned out really well. The girls ate them with butter, honey, jelly or ham. They were very good cold w/ham for breakfast.
