Toasted Almond Biscuits

Servings: Makes 8 biscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds
2 tablespoons honey

Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Combine milk, almonds and honey. Add to butter mixture, mixing just until flour is moistened.

Knead dough gently; shape into a ball. Roll out or pat down dough on a lightly floured surface to 3/4 inch thickness. Using a floured 3-inch heart-shaped or round biscuit cutter, cut out dough, re-rolling as needed. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Serve warm or transfer to wire rack to cool.

Makes: 8 biscuits
