Yummy buttery whole wheat biscuits. A healthier twist on the regular white flour biscuits.

We were really happy with these! The only change I made was to use honey instead of sugar. We used these for a healthy dessert...cottage cheese and mangoes with cinnamon and nutmeg on top of the biscuits. Kind-of like a mango cobbler, I guess. Anyway, great flavor and nice and light, not heavy or hard at all. Thanks! This will be my new go-to for biscuits!
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar or 1 tablespoon splenda sugar substitute
- 3⁄4 cup nonfat milk
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the butter or margarine into the dry ingredients with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Stir in the milk a small bit at a time, adding just enough so that the dough rounds up and leaves the sides of the bowl. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out until it is 1/2-inch thick. Then with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out the biscuits and place them on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or stick a tooth pick in the center. If it comes out clean and not gooey that means they are done. Serve hot with butter or jam.
