Biscuits and Games
 
 
:
Serves: 12 biscuits
Ingredients
  • 12 ounces white whole wheat flour (3 cups flour, but I recommend weighing for accuracy)
  • 2 and ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 8 Tb cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1 scant cup buttermilk
  • 1 T honey
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a great big bowl, mix your dry stuff together: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Once mixed, add the butter around the dry mixture. Mix in with a pastry cutter, forks or your fingers. It should look like coarse crumbs.
  4. Stir the egg, buttermilk and honey together (I just added it all in the buttermilk measuring cup).
  5. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture. Stir with a spatula until just combined.
  6. Sprinkle a little flour on your counter and put the dough on it. Turn it over and knead 3 or 4 times.
  7. Now roll out until ¾" thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter (or cut into squares with a knife).
  8. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve while warm
