Old-fashioned Whole Wheat Biscuits

While my last recipe centered around chocolate as the primary food group, I do in fact eat other foods.  Occasionally.

These old-fashioned biscuits are delicious with gravy at dinner or with apple butter for an on-the-go breakfast and are much healthier than the ones with lard that Grandma used to make ya.

1 c. white whole wheat flour

1 c. organic unbleached all-purpose flour

1 T. aluminum free baking powder

1/4 t. salt

1/2 c. EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil)

1/2 c. unsweetened non-dairy milk (I use almond)

Preheat oven to 450. Mix dry ingredients.  Add EVOO slowly until mixture is crumbly.  Repeat with non-dairy milk.  Gather into ball.  Knead well.  Roll out 1/2 inch thick between sheets of wax paper (no need to flour the rolling pin or surface this way!).  Cut out biscuits with biscuit ring or drinking glass rim.  Recipe makes 10 biscuits.  Bake @ 450 for 10-12 minutes on baking sheet (as you would cookies).  Bottoms should be golden brown.  Serve warm topped with whatever tickles your fancy.
