Savory Tea Biscuits

These biscuits were an overall winner, and incredibly easy to make. Plus, they're adorable!

Alexander and I split them in half and filled them with smoked salmon and sliced onions.

2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp baking powder
4 tablespoons shortening (I use Earth Balance)
1/2 tsp table salt
3/4 cup water or milk
1/4 tsp dried rosemary or thyme (optional)
kosher salt for sprinkling

Combine dry ingredients. Mix in shortening with a fork. When that is fully combined (no lumps), add the liquid. Mix until it just comes together.

Turn the dough out and roll out and shape into 1/2 inch rounds (a shot glass works great for this). Sprinkle with kosher salt and bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
