Author: Cynthia


  • 3 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup powdered dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup of ice water
  • 3/4 cup meat drippings or shortening
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine flour, milk, salt, garlic and brown sugar
  • Cut in shortening or drippings until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal
  • Mix in egg. Add enough water so that mixture forms a ball.
  • Pat out dough 1/2 inch thick with your fingers and cut into shapes with a cookie cutter
  • Place biscuits on a lightly-oiled cookie sheet (I used slipat cookie liners)
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
  • Because the biscuits do not contain preservatives, store in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer. (They last about 3 days at room temp, so I take a enough for a few days at a time)
