Whole wheat butter biscuits


This week Kerstin Tommer of the Macon 4-H Club shares her recipe for Whole Wheat Butter Biscuits, which she received Champion in the Quick Bread/ Muffin category.


Whole Wheat Butter Biscuits

2 cups Whole Wheat Flour

1 Tablespoons Salt

1/3 Cup Butter

1 Tablespoon Baking Powder

1 Tablespoon Sugar

1 Cup Milk


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead 15 to 20 times. Pat or roll dough out to 1 inch thick. Cut biscuits with a large cutter. Repeat until all dough is used. Brush off the excess flour, and place biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet. Brush biscuit tops with extra milk. Bake 13-15 minutes, until edges begin to brown.


Developing cooking skills is an important life skill. We eat every day and food is an important part of our social life.
