English Digestive Biscuits
Makes 3-4 Dozen

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup Confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup cold milk

Place dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cut or rub in the butter
with a pastry blender, two knives or your fingertips. Add the
sugar and enough milk to make a stiff dough. Knead this mixture
on a flour surface until smooth. (All this can be done almost
instantly in a food processor.) If you have time, return the dough
to your bowl, cover and chill for an hour. This resting time will
make the biscuits more tender and crisp. After the dough has
chilled, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Roll out the dough until
it is a bit more than 1/8 inch thick, and cut into any desired
shape. (Traditional digestives are about 2 1/2 inches round.)
Place on greased cookie sheets, prick evenly with a fork and bake
until pale gold, about 15 to 20 minutes.
