Stir in buttermilk until dough leaves side of bowl (dough will be soft and sticky).

Expert Tips

  • Grease cookie sheet with shortening. Increase buttermilk to 1 cup. Drop dough by 12 spoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto cookie sheet.
  • Gold Medal® White Whole Wheat flour can be used in any recipe. It’s the best of both worlds—100% whole grain but with a lighter taste and color. Start substituting 25% or 50% of the all-purpose flour with Gold Medal® White Whole Wheat flour, gradually increasing proportion as desired.
