Recipe Ingredients for Mile High Biscuits

1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 tbsp butter
1 1/2 cup buttermilk

Recipe Directions for Mile High Biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 500F. Spray a 9 inch cake pan with some nonstick spray.

  2. Add flours, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt to a bowl and mix the ingredients together evenly. Using a fork or pastry blender, cut in 3 tbsp of the butter until the pieces are no bigger than a small pea. Fold in the buttermilk until everything is just blended, and there are no streaks of flour remain. Do not overmix, the mixture should still be lumpy.

  3. Line a plate or tray with some flour and using a 1/4 C measuring cup or 1/4 C ice cream/cookie scoop, scoop out balls of the dough onto the tray of flour. Flour your hands and roll each ball around in the flour to evenly coat them in a layer of flour. The dough is very wet and very sticky. Place the dough balls into the prepared pan. Place 9 balls around in a ring and 3 balls in the center of the pan. Brush the tops of the biscuits with 1 tbsp melted butter.

  4. Bake for 5 minutes at 500F (middle rack) and then lower the temperature to 450F and bake for another 15 minutes or until nice and brown.
