The great thing about these biscuits is that you throw everything in one bowl, and there is no need for a rolling pin and biscuit cutters.
All you need to do is combine the following ingredients in a bowl. I whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together. Then, I stir in the grated butter. Then, I gently mix in the milk (careful not to over mix it).
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or you can use 2 cups of white flour)
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup cold butter (grated)
1 cup milk (I use 1%)
Then, form the dough into a ball, and put on a floured surface. Flatten the ball to make a round circle (approximately 1 1/2 inches thick), and cut the circle into 8 pieces (like a pizza).
Put on a Silpat or parchment lined cookie sheet, and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Simple, right? Give them a try and let me know what you think.
