I’m really enjoying the weather here today…it reminds me that Spring is right around the corner! (That does my heart good!) How’s the weather in your corner of the world??
Today I’m sharing a healthy, hearty biscuit recipe. It was definitely a big hit with my family! It’s SO GOOD with some butter, honey, or any spread you love.
It contains spelt flour and a little oat flour. (If you want, you can substitute wheat flour for the spelt flour.) The oat flour I used is some that I made myself. You can make your own Oat Flour too or use store bought.
I also put buttermilk powder in it. If you have liquid buttermilk on hand, you can use 2/3 cup of that in place of the buttermilk powder and water.
I’m sure you’ll love these yummy biscuits as much as my family and I do!
Spelt Flour Buttermilk Biscuits
1 1/2 Cups Spelt Flour
1/2 Cup Oat Flour
1 Tbls Baking Powder (I use aluminum free.)
1/2 tsp Salt
2 1/2 Tbls Buttermilk Powder*
5 Tbls Cold Butter
2/3 Cup Water
Preheat oven to 450°F. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet or lightly spray with non-stick spray.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder, salt and buttermilk powder (if using). Cut butter into small pieces and place in with the flour mixture. Using a pastry blender (or two knives), cut it into the flour til mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water (or liquid buttermilk) and stir just til incorporated; let it rest 5 minutes.
Turn dough onto a mat or other surface dusted with flour. Lightly knead it 4-5 times. With floured hands, pat dough into a circle approximately 1/2 inch thick.
Using a biscuit cutter or glass dipped in flour, cut dough into individual biscuits and place on prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake at 450°F for 8-10 minutes or til golden brown. Serve warm with butter, honey, or other desired spread.
