Well, I had sworn off trying ANOTHER biscuit recipe. But I can always try another 🙂 We had biscuits and sausage for dinner one day and I needed something quick to throw together.
In the meantime, I tried these SmartGames in the classroom and the kids loved them! They were asking to play them again and again – especially Quadrillion. Color Code was a little too easy for some of my advanced math students. But I think most elementary students would enjoy and benefit from the layers of the color code. These games are GREAT for building that logical reasoning and spatial intelligence. I know some kids in my class in the past that struggled with regular classwork, but they excelled and surpassed all expectations when given a spatial reasoning task.

So now we are done with playing games – here are the biscuits! These are very similar to most of my recipes, but the egg was so good and made them so tall and fluffy! Happy Baking!
- 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
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or spray with cooking spray.
- In a great big bowl, mix your dry stuff together: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- 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.
- Stir the egg, buttermilk and honey together (I just added it all in the buttermilk measuring cup).
- Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture. Stir with a spatula until just combined.
- Sprinkle a little flour on your counter and put the dough on it. Turn it over and knead 3 or 4 times.
- Now roll out until ¾" thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter (or cut into squares with a knife).
- Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve while warm
