DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 450˚F.
  2. Combine the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, butter and salt in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low speed until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add the onion, herbs, and milk; mix until just combined--do not overwork the dough.
