    These were superb! Pretty, delicately golden, tall and light. I'm not fond of dill so I substituted marjoram. I found I only needed 3/4 cup of water, so I recommend adding the water incrementally. I made tiny 1" rounds and got about 75 biscuits. They were easily separated into halves and then spread with ham salad. The tops were replaced and the result was the cutest little mouthful of yum! There were no leftovers.

    These were great. and my kids loved them. I used the whole cup of water and the dough was a little wet, so I used lots of flour on the board, but next time I might use less water to start with. I cut them out with a shot glass and that was the perfect size. I spread them with deviled ham spread, but they were great just by themselves! Thanks for a yummy recipe.

    Good thing this recipe made alot because my kids really loved these! I did manage to have a few leftover so I could have them in the freezer, but I don't think they will be there for long. thanks for posting this Bergy!

    These tiny biscuits are wonderful and so versatile! I used a glass about 2 inches across to cut them with. You could use any small cookie cutter to get different shapes! Kids would love this. The flavor was light and delicate. I may use a tad more dill next time. Be sure to add the water gradually as suggested by another reviewer, along with flouring your board too. I know, I know, an experienced biscuit maker would know this! LOL! I served them with chicken salad, but think a ham spread or salmon as suggested by Bergy would be just the thing. Great luncheon or brunch biscuit! Thanks Bergy!


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
