This is a terrific and easy recipe for whole wheat biscuits–they can be finished in 30 minutes, start to finish!
WHOLE WHEAT BISCUITS
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 cup safflower oil
Approx. 1/2 cup milk (more or less as needed)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Slowly pour in the oil, mixing with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture is combined. It will be quite crumbly. Add the milk a little at a time, using just enough to bring the mixture together.
Gather the dough into a ball, and place on a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough about 25 times, then smooth the dough into a ball and pat into a 1/2 inch thick round disk. Use a approx 2 1/2 inch glass or biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits. Gather the scraps, and repeat until all the dough is used. You should have between 8 and 10 biscuits. Place on ungreased baking sheet, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown on top.
