Pile 'em high and watch 'em fly!

Modified from the joy of cooking recipe book. These are a staple at our table and for potlucks. We have them for dinner often & they're good the next day so I make double and triple batches for next day lunch left overs and even with eggs for breakfast.

Whisk together in a large bowl:
1 cup all purpose flour
2/3 whole grain flour (you can use 1 2/3 cups white flour if preferred)
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Whisk together in another bowl:
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup oil

Add flour to mixture and stir just until combined into a shaggy dough, thick and sticky is the aim here not smooth.

I grab the dough and divide it into two, then divide those blobs into two, and again until I have the size biscuit I'd like (they rise a bit in the oven but not much).

At this point I will roll them in my hands to get a lumpy but stuck together-ish shape. Space them about 1.5 inches apart and give them a little squish to flatten them from round balls into tall disks.

Bake until the bottoms are deep golden brown, about 8 minutes. If you have used all white flour the time may be less as whole grains tend to take longer. Be careful, they burn FAST!

You can add in any sort of whole grain flour, I have even made these with All whole grain flour. They were dense and took a while to bake so form them smaller and flatter than the white flour version.
You can add any herbs or spices to the flour mixture, they're so excellent with dill. Parmesan cheese is also very nice.
You can even make a sweet version, reduce the salt, add some vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, cocoa powder etc to the dough &/or sprinkle on top.

These look great! I tried making biscuits a few weeks ago but they ended p flat. I'll have to try this recipe and hope for better luck!
