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
½ cup (one stick) butter
1 large egg
2/3 cup buttermilk (I use regular milk with great success)
1 tsp vanilla
Heat oven to 400
Sift together dry ingredients.
Cut in butter and work in until you have a crumbly texture
In a separate bowl mix together the egg, milk, and vanilla
Combine all ingredients.
Roll out to ½ inch thickness for biscuits or drop spoonful’s over fruit if making a cobbler
Bake biscuits at 400 for 10-15 minutes, or at 325 for 35 minutes if making a cobbler.
