"This has become my STANDBY biscuit recipe! I alternate between WW pastry flour and spelt flour. My trick is that I use 1 1/4 cup AP flour and 3/4 cup of the WW pastry or spelt flour. The biscuits are a nice light brown color and fluffy. The flavor is awesome. They are the BEST biscuits I have tried. Easy and quick to make and quick to bake. Store well in a zip-lock baggie."

"I'm sure they're good, but when I see a recipe for Whole Wheat Biscuits, I expect them to be whole wheat... NOT whole wheat and enriched white flour. There ARE some very good recipes that actually are whole wheat... light and fluffy too!"

"Don't pour in that whole cup of milk! I had to add another cup of flour. I used the dough to make Sweet Sausage Rolls (in this recipe site). They turned out great! The baked rolls puffed up nicely."
