    Testing, Testing…is my CommentLuv working? And the answer is YES–thanks to the wonderful Stacy and Barry! ;) And about these freezer biscuits–I commented on KS yesterday, but these looks DELICIOUS! And Will will thank you when I ever get around to making them! Question: Do you have any idea if I can sub the butter w/ coconut oil? And I’m thinking there isn’t a sub for the kefir/buttermilk, BUT from what I read in your kefir post, the kefir may NOT bother my girls like milk? I must try this soon. I may be asking you for some grains eventually. :) Maybe we will just come get them ourselves at BlogOn in March! :)

    Oh–and THANK YOU for adding HH in your bloggy links. I just noticed that!

    • Stacy

      :-) I just did that this morning. You’re very observant! :-)
      Some people who cannot tolerate milk can drink kefir since it’s been fermented and the lactose is broken down. Try it! I’ll send you grains whenever you’re ready. :-)
      If you use coconut oil instead of the butter, then you need to make sure it’s hard so that it will work in……palm shortening might work better.

    What is the difference between “pastry flour” and regular flour? (I grind wheat berries to make our flour.)

    Thanks!
    Tammy

    • Stacy

      Great question Tammy! :-) I also grind all of our wheat. When I refer to “pastry flour” it can be purchased at the store under the label Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. If you want to grind it at home (like I do), then you’ll just use soft white wheat berries for the equivalent.
      I use hard white wheat for those breads that require yeast. For cakes, muffins, biscuits, etc. that do not use yeast, I always use soft white wheat berries. Does that answer your question? :-)
      I’m always tickled to meet another mama who grinds wheat. :-)

      • Dani

        Love to grind it AHEM flour, that is! I’ll second on the soft white wheat for “pastry flour,” and the reason why is the protein content. Soft white is the grain to use for quick breads, including cookies, biscuits, anything with baking soda/powder as the leavening agent (low protein). I have made biscuits with sprouted soft white wheat, and they turn out great.
        Of course, with this recipe, you could do the overnight “soak” with the kefir (or buttermilk), and still have the benefit of reduced phytates and improved digestion (just add the baking powder, baking soda, and salt AFTER soaking).
        And agreed with an earlier comment on the coconut oil–I usually refrigerate mine, then “shave” it off into the flour as it cuts in much easier that way.
        I’ve never tried freezing them, tho! Definitely going to have to do this, since most times we make them, I have way too many biscuits left over, and of course, they’re much better “fresh” baked than three days old!

        • Stacy

          We just had some last night for dinner with ham. :-) And you’re right….they are SO much better fresh!

  • Tammy

    Thanks so much! I don’t have the soft white wheat berries, but I’ll have to order that next time. In the mean time, I’ll just purchase some pastry flour at the store! Thanks! I also enjoy meeting fellow wheat grinders! :-)

    • Stacy

      You’re welcome! :-)

  • Kim

    Thanks for posting this recipe Stacy, will definitely try it out

    • Stacy

      Enjoy! We LOVE them!

  • Christine S-P

    If you are looking to make this even quicker, instead of rolling them out and cutting them, just use an ice cream scoop (the kind with the little bit that pushes out the ice cream when you squeeze) and scoop them onto the cookie sheet.

    Yup, I really am THAT lazy.

    • Stacy

      HA! I will admit, I like the neatness of cut biscuits. But I’m ocd like that.

  • Candis

    I made these for the second time tonight. They are so easy and good. This is the first whole wheat recipe I’ve used that didn’t turn out like hard, flat, hockey pucks. I used white whole wheat flour and baked the whole batch. I froze about half, already loaded with sausage, for easy grab n go breakfasts. Thank you!

    • Stacy

      :-) I’m glad you like them! We love them!

  • Candis

    Also, I don’t keep buttermilk or kefir, so I stirred a couple of spoonfuls of apple cider vinegar into whole milk to make “buttermilk”. I also used my food processor to cut in the butter to the dry ingredients.

    • Stacy

      I love that quick substitution for buttermilk!

  • Jennifer

    Hi Stacy! I have been following your blog for a while. I run a home daycare and try to do meals with few processed ingredients. The kids love these for breakfast or snacks. Sometimes I add blueberries and we call them scones! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Stacy

      Well, that’s just genius! :-)

  • Amy

    How would I go about cooking these right after I form the biscuits (without freezing)? Thanks, Amy

    • Stacy

      I would bake them the same but start checking around 8 minutes.
