Superb Wheat Biscuits


Flaky biscuits just remind me of Autumn. Perhaps its because biscuits are so comforting when the weather turns cold. Although, honestly, I love biscuits in the summertime, too!

I’ve tried to incorporate more wheat flour into my diet, but it can be challenging. In this recipe, I could hardly tell the wheat flour was there!

Superb Wheat Biscuits


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons buttermilk powder
  • 7 tablespoons butter, cold
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons skim milk


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all-purpose and wheat flours, sugar, salt, cream of tartar, and buttermilk powder.
  3. Cut the butter into chunks and add to dry mixture.
  4. Toss around to coat the butter chunks with the dry mixture.
  5. Working quickly, press the butter into the dry mixture until crumbly, leaving some larger crumbles of butter.
  6. Pour milk into crumbled mixture all at once. Stir with a fork just until moistened.
  7. Dump dough onto dry, clean surface. Fold the dough over itself three or four times until it sticks together.
  8. Pat into a 7-inch by 5-inch rectangle. Cut in half one direction then in half the opposite direction to make four biscuits.
  9. On parchment lined baking sheet, place biscuits so they are not touching.
  10. Bake for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown.
