Olive and Rosemary Biscuits

I have a new-found obsession with the Gilt Taste website. Have you been there? It is an online retailer of all things delicious, nutritious and luscious.  I am religious about checking their recipe section several times a week, which explains techniques for many classic and simple yet comforting, tasty dishes.

My latest adventure involved buttery biscuits with olives and rosemary:

Tip: check if your baking powder has an expiration date!

You shape this crumbly mess into a sort of dough and get out the cookie cutters, or glass...

And voila! They are buttery and crumby, which I love, but I expected them to rise even more in the oven. Boooo.... Also if you are going to add olives, make sure you cut down the salt as the olive brine is quite salty as is. 

What kind of biscuit are you?
