Servings 8 Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 Cup Whole wheat Flour
  • 1 Cup Cold buttermilk
  • 8 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter Frozen and cut into cubes
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 2 Tablespoon Salted butter to brush on top

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425. 
    Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Transfer to a food processor. Cut butter into cubes and add to flour, then pulse 6 or 7 times until the mixture resembles rough crumbs. (Alternatively, cut butter into flour in the mixing bowl using a grater, fork or a pastry cutter.) Return dough to bowl, add buttermilk and stir with a fork until it forms a rough ball (don’t worry if it is a little sticky).
    Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it into a rough rectangle, about an inch thick. Fold it over and gently roll it down again. Repeat 6 times.
    Gently roll out the dough some more, so that it forms a rectangle. Cut dough into biscuits using a floured glass or biscuit cutter. Do not twist cutter when cutting; this will crimps the edges of the biscuit causing it not to rise. If you have scraps just reform a rectangle and cut additional biscuits.
    Place biscuits on a baking sheet and place in oven. Bake until golden brown, approximately 12 to 15 minutes. Serves 6 to 8. Brush on the melted butter and enjoy!
