Whole Wheat Biscuits


2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup shortening

1 cup milk


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

In a stand mixer, combine flour mixture and shortening until crumbly.

Slowly stir in milk until dough comes together and pulls away from the side of the bowl.

Place dough onto a flour surface.  Roll out dough to 1 inch thick.  Cut biscuits with a biscuit cutter or a glass dipped in flour.

Place biscuit onto ungreased baking pan.

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until edges begin to brown. 

(Note:  I used my pampered chef large bar pan so it took me longer to bake about to 18 minutes.)
