Default Buttermilk biscuits... kinda

OK, I'm finally set. I have buttermilk, shortening, baking pwdr/soda,
and even soft winter wheat flour (I think). The only prob is it's not
Martha White or White Lily, traditional Southern soft wheat flours,
which appears to be unobtainable, hereabouts. What I did get, from a
local health food store, is whole wheat pastry flour, which is
basically the same as those other afore mentioned low gluten flours
....or supposed to be. It's jes I wasn't expecting "whole wheat", that
speciously labeled kinda gray looking stuff.

Anyone made biskies with whole wheat pastry flour?

nb - I have never used whole wheat, so if you do, please share the
experience. I'd personally rather use whole wheat. Just haven't gone there.

We've never had trouble with muffins, etc, though.


That's intriguing. I wonder why only brownies.

Thanks for the feedback.

Would you like me to send you a 5 lb. bag of Martha White flour?

The biscuits turned out good. Not what I wanted, but decent
biscuit-like texture for a wheat bran. The dough was pretty wet,
probably for the reason you give above, not enough moisture
absorption. I jes sprinkled extra flour to make the dough somewhat
handy (though still wettish) and went for it. They baked up ok, and
had nice flavor and good rise. I'd do it again, but would rather have
white flour. Overall, I'd rate it a successful experiment.
