Thyme and Lemon Biscuits

This is one of the recipes that I have submitted to a magazine (about a month ago), but it was rejected. That’s why I decided to share it with you and hear your opinion. I found these biscuits extremely delicious and they are perfect at breakfast or during a snack time. Enjoy!

Thyme and Lemon Biscuits
Ingredients:
225 g white flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
a pinch of salt
black pepper
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon flax seeds
75 g butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice
5-6 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons mustard

How It’s Made?
Step 1: Mix flour, salt, black pepper, dried thyme, sugar, and seeds. Add room temperature butter and stir until you obtain a crumbly dough.
Step 2: In a cup, add the baking soda and the lemon juice, then throw the mixture over the dough.
Step 3: In another cup, mix milk with mustard until smooth, and add the obtained liquid over the dough.
Step 4: Form a dough that you can stretch thin with a rolling pin. Using a cookie cutter, cut different shapes.
Step 5: Put the biscuits in a tray, covered in parchment paper, and pierce them with a fork.
Step 6: Preheat oven and cook the biscuits for about 5-10 minutes, until they turn golden.

  1. Thanks for the recipe! Do you have any recommendations for making it gluten-free for those of us with dietary restrictions?

    1. Thanks for the comment! I guess you can replace the white flour with gluten free flour or coconut flour. I don’t know with what can be substituted the mustard. I searched on the Internet and I found out that most prepared mustard are gluten free. A few prepared mustard are made with either wheat flour or malt vinegar. Read the ingredient list to make sure your prepared mustard does not.
      The mustard in my recipe offers a subtle aroma to the biscuits. I never tried, but I guess you can skip adding it to the dish (as a last option).

      Hope this helps!
