 Whole Grain Cheese Biscuits

These biscuits are so easy to make and so delicious - I love the "grainy" taste!
These biscuits are great dipped in/or served with the following meals/recipes:

Garden Preserved Chili
Chicken Corn Chowder
Garden Preserved Beef Stew

I make biscuits for many different recipes - savory & sweet - checkout the following recipes that use a variation of these biscuits:

Strawberry Shortcake
Maple'n Bacon Biscuits with Poached Eggs & Cheese
Blueberry Lemon Shortcake

1/2 cup butter (cold from fridge - not frozen)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup 10 grain cereal
1 1/4 cup unbleached white flour
1 tablespoon sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk

In a large mixing bowl combine the wheat flour, cereal, white flour, sugar, powdered sugar, salt & shredded cheese & stir.  Now cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until the dough resembles the picture above.  Now stir in the milk & with then with your hands knead the dough just until all of the dry ingredients is blended together.  Form the dough into a cylinder & slice into about 9 or 10 puck sized slices (see picture below).  Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet & bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until desired color is achieved.
