Whole-Grain Biscuits

Serves: 12

Salt and pepper bring out the hearty richness of whole wheat in these buttery biscuits. It's all about portion control here--you get to eat two!

Total Time:


1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 cup white whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2/3 cup 1-percent milk


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk together both flours, the baking powder, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Work in the butter using your fingers or a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles small peas.

Add the milk and stir until just incorporated. Gently knead into a ball, and then pat into a 1-inch-thick rectangle. Cut into twenty-four 1 1/2-inch squares and place on the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between each biscuit. Sprinkle an additional 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper on top.

Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet and serve warm.
