Easy to put together, and hard to forget

This biscuit recipe is simple to put together and so versatile.

Sunday day morning biscuits and gravy go hand in hand with this quick recipe. Make sure to use whole grain White Sonora or Red Fife to make the most of it.

Biscuits. They go with just about everything. Pssh, they are everything. But they usually are overlooked as the star of the show. I'm guilty of keeping the 'pop' biscuits in the fridge from time to time. Sometimes, like most of you. I just don't have time to bake from scratch. That is until I actually sat down and put this recipe together. It's simple, takes just a few minutes and can be frozen and baked for quick addition to your meal. I always double the recipe, the leftover biscuits make a wonder breakfast sandwich on those busy mornings.

Easy Heirloom Wheat Biscuits

Makes 8 biscuits 25 min

Pre-heat oven to 450°

2 C Whole grain White Sonora or Red Fife flour

4 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp salt if using unsalted butter

4TB Butter cold (1/2) stick

1 C Milk

1. In a large mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients. Mix well with a whisk or fork.

2. Cut the 1/2 stick into pea sized pieces into the flour mixture.

3. Using a fork or pastry blender, mix the butter pieces into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Some pea sized is fine.

4. Pour the milk into the crumb mixture, and mix together. Knead the dough with your hands about 8-10 times, and then turn onto a floured counter or cutting board.

5. Pat out the dough flat with your hands until the dough is somewhat even 3/4" or thicker (I prefer 1") if you want taller biscuits. Sprinkle flour lightly if needed.

6. Turn a drinking glass upside down, if you do not have a biscuit cutter, and cut rounds or whatever shape desired. You can even cut scone shapes as well.

7. Place cut biscuits on an ungreased sheet or parchment paper lined pan . You can also place in a cast iron skillet and bake at 450° for 10-12 minutes. Look for the golden brown color. Brush with melted butter if desired.
