Hello Homemade: Whole Wheat Biscuts

So....I am still pretty stinkin' excited that I made my own biscuits from scratch!!!!
This is something that even the thought of just 6 months ago terrified me.
So I'm pretty proud.

The recipe I used was SO SIMPLE that it had me wondering why anyone even buys canned biscuits in the first place?!??
And to make it even better, they were WHOLE WHEAT and "clean"!

I served these as my "crust" for my chicken pot pie tonight, they were delicious!
I will definitely be making these biscuits again and again! :)

Super Easy Whole Wheat Biscuits


2 cups whole wheat flour (I used King Arthur’s white whole wheat organic flour)
4 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup cold unsalted butter
1 cup milk (any kind)


In a medium sized bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well with whisk or fork.
Cut the ½ stick butter into little pea sized pieces and then mix the pieces into the flour mixture.

Using a fork, try to mash the butter pieces as you mix it together with the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs. It is okay if the outcome just looks like the same pea sized pieces of butter covered with flour.

Then pour in the milk and mix it all together. Knead the dough with your hands 8 to 10 times and then turn out onto a counter or cutting board.

Pat it out flat with your hands until the dough is a somewhat even ¾-inch thickness (sprinkle with a little flour if necessary).

Turn a drinking glass upside down and cut out biscuit rounds. I have also used shaped cookie cutters (like a heart or star) if you have little ones helping you!

Then put them on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
