Sundried Tomato Biscuits


2 ½ cups of flour
4 teaspoons of baking powder
½ teaspoon of salt
2/3 cup of cold unsalted butter cubed
1 ¼ cups of heavy cream

For Sundried Tomato Basil - add in 1/3 cup of basil (chopped), 6 sundried tomatoes (diced), 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese (grated)

For Cilantro Spice - add in 1/3 cup of cilantro (chopped), 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add in the desired optional ingredients. Cut butter into the mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cream until just combined. Dough can be dropped on to a parchment lined baking sheet or patted out and cut into biscuits. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. We liked the Sundried tomato ones better but I think the cilantro ones would be good as a breakfast sandwich biscuit.
