Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups whole spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cubed
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 3/4 cups crumbled goat cheese (3 oz/90 g)

Method

In large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, spelt flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until crumbly. Pour all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the milk over top; sprinkle with goat cheese. Stir with fork to form soft ragged dough.

On lightly floured surface and with floured hands, knead dough gently to come together. Pat or roll out to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness. Using floured 2-1/2-inch (6 cm) round cutter, cut out biscuits, pressing and cutting scraps for final biscuit. Place on parchment paper–lined or flour-dusted baking sheet.

Brush tops with remaining milk. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until gold­en, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool.
