I was feeling southern comfort food after watching an episode of Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Guy was eating some biscuits and gravy at one of the diners he was visiting and it looked so good! I figured I could easily make them myself and voila I did! I baked up some Whole Wheat Biscuits and while baking, I also made a Simple Sausage Gravy. I'll try to post the gravy recipe soon, but this is my birthday week and I'm going to be super busy with a bunch of fun activities! Enjoy!
Whole Wheat Biscuits
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
In a stand mixer, combine flour mixture and shortening until crumbly.
Place dough onto a flour surface. Roll out dough to 1 inch thick. Cut biscuits with a biscuit cutter or a glass dipped in flour.
