Spelt biscuits

These are yummy. Ingredients:

2 cups whole spelt flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter straight from the fridge
2/3 cup milk


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Combine the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the butter. You want to break it up with a fork (and knife if it is really cold) until the butter is in little pieces, no bigger than a pea. You want it like little crumbs almost. Those little butter pieces will melt while the biscuit is cooking, giving it a wonderful flavor. If you melt the butter and add it then it doesn't turn out as good.

After the butter is added, add the milk until it just becomes doughy. You may need a little more or less milk. When you have a good dough, just grab a hunk and pat it until it's 1/2 to 1 inch thick. Stick on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Eat with butter and honey or jam. Or honey and jam. They will be a little crumbly, I usually eat mine with a fork.
