Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease a medium sized cookie sheet.

In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Add the softened butter and whisk the wet and dry until moist.

Once the dough comes together, knead quickly. Roll into a 3/4 inch round and cut into 6-8 pieces. Place onto the greased sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Allow to cool slightly and serve.
