1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
6 TBSP butter, cut into cubes and chilled
3/4 cup milk
Pulse dry ingredients in food processor, then drop in cubes of chilled butter. Pulse until butter resembles breadcrumbs, then add milk. Pulse until dough comes together as one mass, not longer. Do not allow the butter to melt or form a blended paste with the flour. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times.
Roll dough 1/2 inch thick into a rectangle, then cut into squares (or cut into rounds). Bake at 450° F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
These are great as a topper for chicken pot pie. Recipe courtesy of Joy of Cooking.
