Whole Wheat Biscuits, SL1991

We have been experimenting with whole wheat flour in an effort to eat healthy. When I saw a photo of these golden-brown biscuits in the Southern Living Annual, I wanted to make them right away. Unfortunately, my biscuits look nothing like the picture in the recipe book. My mother said they were ugly and look like little rocks. Let me assure you that they are quite tasty despite my lack of baking skills and mangled photo. The Mister said that they reminded him of a cross between a biscuit and a roll and asked that we keep this one on the "Recipes to Make Again" list. So even without a magazine worthy photo, these are definitely a keeper.

Whole Wheat Biscuits

Adapted from the Southern Living 1991 Annual Recipes, Page 222
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp butter (The recipe calls for reduced-calorie margarine)
  • 3/4 cup milk (The recipe calls for evaporated skim milk)
  • Cooking spray
In a bowl, combine all-purpose flour, wheat flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry blender. Add the milk until the dough is moistened. Knead the dough about 1 minute. Divide the dough into 12 balls and place on a greased pan, slightly flattening the dough. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
