Tea Biscuits

These lil’ tea biscuits shocked me!


Kneading, Rolling, cookie cutter…. I think I avoided this recipe for awhile because the instructions alone make me feel like I will be prepping these forever!  I am all about quick cooking/baking. But photography & bake time included, I was done in 30 minutes!


2 ingredients and simple instructions, I’m now sold on Bisquick!  I will buy it again!   One thing to note is that the recipe indicates that these should bake 12 – 15 minutes.  I pulled them out at 10 minutes, and as you can see from my pictures, they are a bit dark.  I would recommend a 7-9 minute bake time.

Oma's old rolling pin (Grandma's mom) gets lots of squeaky use around here!
