  • 1-1/2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup regular wheat germ
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup light cream


Combine the flour, wheat germ, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Stir well to blend. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the cream and stir with a fork until all ingredients are moistened.

Turn out on to a lightly floured board and knead gently 20 times. Roll the dough to 1/2-inch thickness and cut with a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet at 450 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes.
