I like to use this in lieu of shortbread for strawberry shortcake or as a cobbler topping for a nectarine cobbler. Just drop blobs of dough on the top of the nectarines and bake at 325 until done (about 35 minutes).

  • 2 cups whole wheat fine flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup (one stick) butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk (I use regular milk with great success)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Heat oven to 400
  2. Sift together dry ingredients.
  3. Cut in butter and work in until you have a crumbly texture
  4. In a separate bowl mix together the egg, milk, and vanilla
  5. Combine all ingredients.
  6. Roll out to ½ inch thickness for biscuits or drop spoonfuls over fruit if making a cobbler
  7. Bake biscuits at 400 for 10-15 minutes, or at 325 for 35 minutes if making a cobbler.
