Beginning the week....

Another week is here.  Did you have a busy week-end?  Do you have a long list for today?

I believe you have seen this before.

Biscuits - always a treat!

The recipe for these has been in my file for a number of years.  I wish I could remember the source as I always like to give credit, but I really have no idea how I came upon this recipe.

2 cups flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup butter, cold and cut into small pieces
1 egg
1 cup milk
- Mix dry ingredients together.  Cut in butter.
- Add liquid (egg and milk), stirring until moistened.
- Knead to hold together, roll, and cut.
- Bake at 450 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes.  Yield depends on size of biscuit cutter.  Using the smaller cutter gave me 24 biscuits.  The Husband has been enjoying them!:)

This was not to be the year for a Triple Crown winner.  California Chrome, the favored horse to win it all, had a fourth place finish on Saturday.  Congratulations to the winner - Tonalist. 

Have a good Monday!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments. 


  1. Those biscuits look so good Nellie! I would really enjoy one right now with butter and strawberry preserves!

  2. Sad to see California Chrome lose. I was pulling for him! Those biscuits would be awesome with some good sausage gravy :)

  3. Nellie, I truly love the taste of biscuits. I rarely eat them though. Hope you have a great week. xoxo,Susie

  4. Hi Nellie , love biscuits and those look awesome , they was would go wonderful some good sopping gravy and some honey . Thanks for sharing :)

  5. Oh, I do like the look of these biscuits and the fact that they use some whole wheat flour! They're more work than I usually put into my cooking, but would be SO worth it! I'll have to give them a try soon! have a marvelous Monday, Sister!

  6. Very yummy looking biscuits. I do love them. This looks like a very nice recipe.
    Yes, I was sad there was no Triple Crown.
    It is supposed to be 108 today so I am rushing around trying to get my work done.
    It was already 80 degrees by 5:30 A.M.
    I do have a very long list today too.
    Have a nice day.

  7. Thanks for the update on the race.

    Wish I had one of your delicious biscuits; thank you for the recipe. I bought a new bottle of honey that would be good drizzled over a biscuit!

  8. These look so good. We had berry shortcake on Saturday with biscuits and real whipped cream. One of my most favorite treats. Here's to a sweet Monday.

    Too bad about the Triple Crown, maybe next time.

  12. They look delicious. They'd be good with tea, I think.

  13. Thanks for the recipe. They look delicious. I make biscuits often so I'm sure to try these. One more biscuit recipe can't hurt. Hugs,

  14. So, stupid thick do you make the dough before you cut the biscuits?
