Our Morning Biscuits
These have become a staple in our house this past school year. Cheese biscuits. They're pretty quick and easy to make. The thing that takes the longest to do is wait for the oven to heat up to 450!
1 Cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 Cup wheat germ
1/2 Cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 tsp. salt
shy 1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 Cup grated cheese - your choice (I use cheddar)
1 1/4 C. buttermilk
4 Tbs. canola oil
*optional 1/3 C chopped green onions (add shy 1/2 tsp. of dried mustard)
touch of butter to grease tins
**Also optional: Add one beaten egg to the wet ingredients, for a little added protein and texture. (We usually do add the egg.)
Heat oven to 450. Check email. Grease two standard sized muffins tins.
Mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir in cheese (and optional green onion).
Mix wet ingredients together. Stir into dry mixture to form soft dough.
Dollop into muffins tins in equal amounts, filling all twelve muffin tin cups.
Bake 9 minutes, or until golden brown.
