Big Biscuits

When serving soup, I like to have some sort of bread. Tonight I made some lovely biscuits from a recipe I found here. I forgot to get the butter out to soften. Okay, it was actually still in the freezer. So I just grated it with a cheese grater and it worked perfectly. I also doubled the recipe for my family of six. As written below, the recipes makes 12 biscuits.

1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup milk

In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Cut in butter (or grate it!) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8 to 10 times. Roll or push with your hands to 3/4-in. thickness or so; cut with a large biscuit cutter and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

That is a really good idea to grate the frozen butter, mine is always in the freezer and I always forget!
