Number of Servings: 18


    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup whole-wheat flour
    1 T plus 1 t baking powder
    1 t salt
    1/4 cup shortening
    1 cup 1% milk
    2 T ground cinnamon
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    6 T butter


First mix cinnamon and brown sugar together.

In another bowl put the first 4 ingredients, mix these together to blend.

Add the shortening to the dry ingredients and blend till it is an oatmeal consistency. I use my fingers for this.

Then make a well in the middle and add the milk.
stir this till it forms a ball.

Dust the counter with flour and roll out to about 1/4 inch thick. Now spread the butter over the top of this and sprinkle the cinnamon and brown sugar mixture over this. Roll this all up into a tube and then cut into 18 equal parts.

Put on baking sheet and bake on the middle rack of oven at 375 for 15 - 20 minutes. My oven cooks them in 17 minutes.

    I did make a few mods. I switched out the 1% to skim, b/c that was all I had. I also reduced the butter to no more than 3 T. The recipe comes out great, and I am on my 4th batch of them. I suggest not adding the milk all at once. Pour half, then mix. This allows you to adjust if sticky. - 1/1/14
