Morning Biscuits with Rosemary

Makes about 1 1/2 dozen

1 cup unbleached flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
dash of salt
½ tbsp sugar
¾ cup milk
2 tbsp butter
2 tsp crumbled, dried rosemary (or 2 tbsp fresh, chopped)

Excluding the rosemary, sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl. With a fork or pastry cutter, work the butter into the dry ingredients - some small lumps will remain. Add the rosemary and milk and mix well to form a soft dough.

Roll out the dough to ½ inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut into two-inch rounds and place on a greased and lightly floured baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes at 400° F.
