Mamma’s Sky-High Biscuits

A little whole grain makes these healthier and very satisfying! Makes about 15, depending on the size of your cutter.

2 C. white flour
1 C. whole wheat flour
4 ½ tsp. baking powder
2 T. sugar
½ tsp. salt
¾ tsp. cream of tartar
¾ C. butter/margarine
1 egg
1 C. milk

Preheat oven to 425º. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and cut in the butter/margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and milk , stirring quickly to blend, then knead dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll to a 1” thickness and cut with a 1-2” biscuit cutter (or use a drinking glass dipped in flour). Place on a parchment-papered cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned.

Kitchen Hint: You can do all the mixing in a food processor! Faster and easier! You can freeze them, too.
