Joel's new favorite nemesis

Fluffy Whole-Wheat Biscuits

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 (unsalted)
1 cup milk (I used about 2/3 c buttermilk and 1/3 c skim)

In a medium bowl, combine flours, baking powder, sugar, and salt; mix well. Cut in butter (I used a pastry blender)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 (I just patted it flat with my hands and then cut off square/triangle-pieces with a butterknife) and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
