Green onions and a little parsley makes these tasty wheat biscuits extra special. These biscuits are super easy to make; most of the mixing is done in the food processor.
These are wonderful biscuits to enjoy with a hearty stew, or top with ham or turkey slices.
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- Optional: 1 tablespoon sugar
- 5 tablespoons butter, chilled
- 3 green onions (chopped)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley (chopped)
- 3/4 cup (plus 1 tablespoon) buttermilk
- Heat oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
- In food processor, combine the flours, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar, if using.
- Add the butter in small pieces, then the chopped green onions and parsley. Process until mixture resembles meal.
- Note: If you don't use a food processor, work the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles meal, then add finely chopped green onion and parsley.
- Stir in the buttermilk until ingredients are just moistened. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 2 or 3 times, just until you have a soft cohesive dough.
- Pat out into a circle about 3/4-inch thick. Cut out with biscuit cutters and arrange on the baking sheet.
- Bake for about 11 to 14 minutes, until lightly browned.
Makes about 1 dozen biscuits.
