These biscuits were delicious! It is a nice change from the regular white biscuits. I will definitely be making these again.
I just pulled my first batch of these out of the oven and I agree--they are amazing. I used King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour.
WOW! I had stopped making biscuits because I never found a good enough 100% whole wheat recipe - but these were terrific! Like a "real" biscuit! They rose so tall, had a great flaky texture, and tasted great! I followed the recipe, using "white" whole wheat flour and "light" sour cream, and I did need a bit of extra milk. I am thrilled to have this recipe!
I made these tonight to go with dinner and my whole family found them delightful, they have an absolutly wonderful aroma and texture, taste great and as a bonus since they are somewhat heaver than regular biscuits they stay warm longer in the basket. I used freshly milled hard red winter wheat in this recipe. Best whole wheat biscuits to date! Thanks Shorter Mama!
This is the whole wheat biscuit recipe that I have been looking for! I used 2 cups of freshly ground white wheat and also substituted plain yogurt for the sour cream. I added a little extra milk so I had drop biscuits instead of roll out ones and just stirred it until it was all mixed well. I obviously didn't knead it at all since it was drop biscuits. I have had a hard time finding a 100% whole wheat biscuit that tastes good and has a nice texture. This has both. These are excellent. Even my husband who resists wheat said that these were good. He was surprised when I told him they were 100% whole wheat and said they tasted very close to my regular biscuits. This is an extreme compliment considering he isn't a wheat man. I'm getting rid of all my other biscuit recipes and just keeping this one. Thanks so much!
We made this and got very nice biscuits, with lots of whole wheat flavor and a good texture, that was a little crispy around the edges. They were served at breakfast with an assortment of sugar-free jams for something light and quick. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
These are terrific biscuits. I made a 1/2 recipe and used 2 TBS of heart healthy margarine and fat free sour cream. I got wonderful biscuits that are moist and fluffy on the inside nice firm outside. The crust is very thin the kosher salt is wonderful here. Simply delicious, I have a new biscuit recipe.
