Graham Tea Biscuits

Good morning!

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.


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.

Don't twist as you cut out biscuits!!
Look what happens...  sigh!
