Flaky Whole Wheat Biscuits

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

Makes

10 biscuits

Whole wheat flour gives these biscuits a nutty, homey flavor. Ever since I started making these, white flour biscuits just don't taste as good! Pair them with soup or slather them with whipped cream and sweetened berries for a dessert treat. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
