Description

Makes 8 biscuits Prep time: 15-20 minutes Ingredients • 2 cups whole wheat flour • 1 Tbsp. baking powder • 4 Tbsp. sugar (or alternative sweetener, find a conversion table at http://www.sweetleaf.com/recipes/conversion-chart) • 11⁄2 tsp. salt • 6 ounces unsalted butter, frozen and grated • 3⁄4 cup milk Egg wash: • 1 egg, beaten • 2 Tbsp. water Preparation 1. Preheat oven to 400° F. 2. Freeze butter and grate it or cut it into pea sized chunks before making biscuits. 3. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix well. Using your hands, incorporate frozen butter into the flour mixture, being careful not to let butter get too warm. Add milk and mix by hand just until the dough holds together. 4. Place the dough on a flat, lightly floured surface and pat or roll dough into a rectangular shape 1--2 inches thick. Use a cutter or cup to cut out biscuits and place on a greased baking tray. Gently brush the tops of the biscuits with the egg wash. 5. Bake on a greased baking pan at 400 degrees for 3 minutes. Lower the temperature of the oven to 375 degrees and continue to bake for another 5 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly. Serving Suggestion Serve biscuits warm with softened butter and honey. You can substitute a wheat-free flour mix for whole wheat flour if desired.
