I thought you might be interested in a recipe I've just tried for the very first time. It's from (probably) my favourite cookbook, Muffins & More by Jean Pare.
The "unusual" ingredient for me was graham cracker crumbs... Jean Pare was right - these little biscuits DO have a distinctive flavour. Try them!

Graham Tea Biscuits
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix dry ingredients.
1/2 cup butter
Cut in butter until crumbly.
3/4 cup milk
Add milk. Stir in lightly with fork.
On a lightly floured surface, knead lightly ten times.
Roll or pat out.
Cut out biscuits and place on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 425ºF for 10 - 12 minutes.
NOTE: These are best eaten warm and would be great served with a hearty soup.
DID YOU KNOW...
When cutting out biscuits, it's important to "press and lift". Don't twist the cutter as you lift up!! Here's a picture to show what happens to your biscuit if you forget that rule.

Look what happens... sigh!
