Oatmeal Biscuits

Remember my retro food processor?  My grandparents recently moved and I inherited a small box of cookbooks.  Among them was an instruction book for my model food processor! I flipped through some of the recipes and found this one that was a huge hit at my house.  We love biscuits and I serve them often alongside a casserole.  This is a drop biscuit, a variation on a baking powder biscuit.  I have written the food processor instructions, but I am pretty sure this could be stirred together by hand with good results.

Oatmeal Biscuits
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 c. quick oats
4 1/2 tsp. baking powder
4 Tbsp. butter or margarine, chilled and cut into cubes
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
3 Tbsp. honey

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Position knife blade in bowl of food processor.  Add flour, baking powder, salt and butter. Process for 10 seconds.  Remove cover and add oats, egg, milk and honey.  Process until just moistened--about 5 seconds.  Remove knife blade.  (If any of the flour remains unblended, stir in with rubber spatula.)  Drop by well rounded tablespoons onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 8 min.  Serve hot with butter and jam. Makes about 18 biscuits.
