Rosemary Biscuits

In case you want to bake something delicious:

Rosemary Biscuits
(not the same as the ones at Gulfstream restaurant, but 5 of us ate an entire batch at dinner)

2 c flour
1 1/2 T baking powder
1 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 c butter
3/4 c buttermilk
1 egg
olive oil
coarse salt

-Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl.
-Cut 1/2 cup butter into flour mixture with mixer or your fingers until just crumbly (don't want to integrate butter -- some globs still are ok)
-Combine buttermilk and egg in separate bowl
-Add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened
-Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times
-Pat or roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch round cutter (or cut into squares with
a pizza slicer)
-Place on a baking sheet
-Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt
-Bake at 425 degrees for 14 to 15 minutes or until golden

-(They also happen to be delicious with fresh jam)
