Whole Wheat Biscuits

Whole Wheat Biscuits

Tea biscuits are a popular treat and a good addition to a light meal. I make a variety of recipes, but I had a craving for the whole wheat variety tonight, so I whipped up a batch of these.

Simple dinner or snack biscuits made with whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup milk or plain yogurt
  • Preheat an oven to 450° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl.

  • Cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a pastry cutter or fork. The mixture should be crumbly.

  • Add the milk or yogurt and stir with a fork until a soft dough is formed. Put the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead 8 to 10 times. Roll or pat the dough to a 3/4-inch thickness. Cut into 2-inch round shapes with a cookie cutter or cut into squares or triangles with a knife.

  • Arrange on the baking sheet. If you want the biscuits to have crisper sides, leave about an inch between the biscuits, otherwise bake them close together.

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until browned. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack. Let cool for a few minutes and serve hot or warm with a dab of butter.
