It has been a long week here and I appreciate your grace as I have made myself available to my friend and her family. I did want to get this post up that I had planned for today. We LOVE this biscuit recipe. It makes a big batch of biscuits too…enough for a meal for our large family. Enjoy!
5 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons sea salt
2/3 cups butter, softened
2 cups milk
additional flour as needed
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In your Bosch or heavy duty mixer, add the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Run the mixer for a bit to mix the dry ingredients up well.
Add in the softened butter and allow to mix until mixture resembles small crumbles (butter is distributed pretty evenly).
Add in milk and then more flour. Keep adding flour slowly until the dough does not stick to sides of bowl while mixing.
Allow to mix for a few minutes.
Remove dough from bowl and place on counter to roll out (I do not flour the counters at all. I find that the dough does not really stick too bad to the counter and using flour tends to dry out the dough and gives me more to clean up!) Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut with cutter or glass.
Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for about 13 minutes or until edges begin to brown.
