Brown Sugar Bacon Biscuits

Seriously Delish, page 48

No body knew that these biscuits were half whole wheat flour and had only 4 tablespoons of butter.  They were far too distracted by the perfectly soft crumb, flaky texture…oh yeah, and the bacon.

These biscuits are not traditional biscuits, with never ending layers that only a southern grandmother can make.  They are more like scones, to be honest, but that doesn’t take anything away from them.  They were simple, and yummy, and totally fun to make.  Not too sweet, not too savory.  A very democratic biscuit.

They didn’t last long at work the next day. That’s not saying much, though, since people at work will eat pretty much anything. However, I will say, they were not as popular as the Omelet Scones I had brought in a few weeks prior.  Those were an overwhelming hit.  Overall, this is definitely a recipe you can keep around and tweak for different flavor combinations.  I really loved the use of whole wheat pastry flour, and the fact that the butter content wasn’t astronomical.  That means seconds are calorie free , right?
