Disappearing Drop Biscuits

Dear Lissy,
This recipe is by special request...from you! For this recipe, I combined Never Fail Biscuits from allrecipes.com and Kate's Biscuits from American As Apple Pie, switching the flour to whole wheat.  They're super easy for a weeknight supper since there's no rolling required.

Disappearing Drop Biscuits

2 cups (9 oz) white whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp sugar
1/2 butter, chilled and diced
1 cup milk

Place rack in top 1/3 of oven and preheat oven to 500 degrees.  Grease 12  3" round spots on an insulated or foil-lined cookie sheet.  Whisk together dry ingredients and cut in butter until mixture resembles oatmeal.  Pour in milk all at once, and beat until mixture forms a thick paste.  Drop egg-sized pieces onto the greased spots on the prepared cookie sheet, flattening slightly.  Bake 8-10 minutes until just barely golden.  Serve hot.

Love and hugs,
