Martha shows you how to make oatmeal and dried-cherry biscuits, a tasty -- and healthy -- snack.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut butter into oat mixture until the mixture resembles a coarse meal; whisk in dried cherries. In another medium bowl, mix together egg, buttermilk, and vanilla and almond extracts until well combined. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; mix until well combined.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface; roll out to a 1-inch-thick 8-by-6-inch rectangle. Cut biscuits into eight 2-by-3-inch rectangles using a sharp knife; transfer biscuits to prepared baking sheet. Brush biscuits with buttermilk and sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Transfer biscuits to oven and bake until tops are lightly browned, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool slightly before serving.
