Fluffy Spelt Biscuits

Sadly we finally opened our last jar of homemade apple butter :(
It was delicious and nestled perfectly onto the fluffy spelt biscuits I whipped up to accompany it. I really love biscuits because they are a 1 bowl in and out kind of recipe, no fuss. That no fuss ends with warm fluffy biscuits- that's a win.

I've been experimenting with spelt flour and loving the results. Spelt is a very old derivative of wheat. A lot of people with gluten allergies can eat it as well. Plus my big win is that where wheat flour can create tough grainy biscuits the spelt flour rose to the occasion and they were nothing but light and fluffy. Plus spelt has a bit of a nutty flavor which I really enjoy.
