Whole Wheat buttermilk biscuits

Submitted by: JOY_JOY

Introduction

Adapted from a Company's Coming recipe, using whole wheat flour instead of white, light buttermilk instead of regular, and with the margarine cut in half! These obviously aren't the healthiest snacks ever, but paired with a nice cauliflower soup or something, one of these biscuits is an acceptable indulgence! I usually make a batch or two, freeze them on baking sheets, then transfer to ziplocs and just make a couple at a time. They still only take about 15 min to bake!

Ingredients

    2 cups whole wheat flour
    2 Tbsp sugar
    1 tsp salt
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp cream of tartar
    1/4 cup margarine
    3/4 cup 1% (light) buttermilk

Directions

Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cream of tartar in bowl. Stir thoroughly.

Cut in butter until crumbly.

Pour in buttermilk. Stir quickly to combine. Dough should be soft. Turn out on lightly floured surface. Knead gently 8-10 times. Roll or pat 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick (about half the thickness you want the baked product to be). Cut with small round cookie cutter. Place on greased cookiesheet close together for soft sides or apart for crisp sides. Bake in 450 F oven for 12-15 minutes. Brushing biscuits with milk before baking will produce a pretty brown top. Makes 14.

Number of Servings: 14
