Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

I was hoping that these biscuits would be better than just using the canned biscuits. Unfortunately, they are 3 points each and the canned biscuits are 2 points each. I also thought that the wheat flour would boost the fiber content, but they only have 1 gram of fiber per biscuit. So much for healthier biscuits. They did taste good though, and they weren't hard to make.

1 cup all-purpose 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 flours, baking powder, sugar, and salt; mix well. Cut in butter 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 to 3/4-in. thickness; cut with a 2-1/2-in.
biscuit cutter and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12
minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm. Makes 10 biscuits.

Thanks for visiting the sisters' cafe. I would love to try these biscuits. Especially since they look fluffy and not like hockey pucks. I tried a different whole wheat biscuit recipe once and ended up with hard little biscuits. Yours looks so much better!
