Wheat Drop Biscuits

makes 9-12 depending on size


1 1/4 C. wheat flour

1 C. all purpose flour

4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. sugar

1/3 C. shortening ( I use all vegetable shortening which is free of trans-fat)


Mix together first 5 ingredients. Cut in the shortening. Gently stir in the following:


2 beaten eggs

2/3 C. milk


Mix just until the dough follows the spoon. Knead 4-5 turns on floured board. (You may need to add more flour to get the dough so it's not sticky.) Drop mounds onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
