Buttermilk Biscuits

These come from Nourishing Traditions. Very good, but need planning ahead of time. Makes about 12 biscuits.


1 cup unbleached white flour
2 cups light whole wheat flour
1 cup buttermilk
4 tbsp melted butter
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
unbleached flour


Mix flour with buttermilk to form a thick dough. Cover and leave in a warm place for 12 to 24 hours. Please in food processor and process several minutes to knead. Blend in remaining ingredients. Remove dough to a well floured pastry cloth or board and sprinkle with unbleached white flour to prevent sticking. Roll dough to about 3/4 inch thickness. Cut biscuits with a glass and place on a buttered baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 min. Serve with butter and honey or mustard and cold meats.
