Kind of healthy drop biscuits

We've not been able to get our schedule to work with the weather and when the farm's open, so we ran out the other night and picked 10lb of strawberries in 20 min. We got back, made some freezer jam from the certo box, and for dinner the next night we had biscuits and jam :)

This biscuits were the basic drop biscuits from America's Test Kitchen's Family Baking Book, with the exception that I replaced half the ap with white whole wheat. They were still nice and tender, and the www made them feel a little healthier.

We're hoping to get out again this week as the season's ending, because after one strawberry-rhubarb pie, one batch of freezer jam, one strawberry/currant jelly and the kids eating like crazy our flat's already gone.

That's my kind of dinner! Good to know you can swap out some APF and replace it with white whole wheat. I've been buying strawberries like crazy and making smoothies, jam and freezing them for the sad strawberry-less months.
