2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
6 Tbsp margarine
1 egg
1/2 cup skim or 1 percent milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp very cold water, about
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
Sesame seeds, optional

1. Combine flour, sugar and salt. With a pastry blender or a fork, cut in the margarine until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
2. Beat egg in a small bowl. Stir in milk and peanut butter (mixture will be lumpy). Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir. Stir in the water, 1 tsp at a time, until the dough forms a ball.
3. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for 3 minutes. Roll dough out to a 1/2-inch thick rectangle. Cut into desired shapes with a cookie cutter. Brush with beaten egg whites and if desired sprinkle with sesame seeds.
4. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until firm and golden about 30 minutes. Reduce baking time if you rolled biscuits thinly.
Best if air-dried for 3 or 4 days before being stored in a plastic bag or container.
