Recipe: Whey Biscuits

Originally published 4/28/2007: 

Here's the recipe I have used for years to use up the goat's milk whey leftover from cheese making. I like to use wheat flour. I usually mix wheat with a little white for texture.


2 1/2 c Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 c Whey
1 tsp Salt
4 tsb Shortening

Instructions: Sift flour measure and sift with baking powder baking soda and salt. Work in shortening with the finger tips or cut in with 2 spatulas. Add sufficient whey to form a soft roll dough. Turn onto lightly floured board. Knead lightly. Pat into sheet 3/4 inch thick. Cut with floured cutter. Place on slightly oiled baking sheet. Bake in hot oven (450 F) about 10 minutes. 10 servings.
