Ham and Cheese Shapes

We were out of bread today, but still had some ham and cheese. The solution? Ham and cheese biscuits! And why not make them into shapes while we're at it? Hearts for the big girl, a dog bone for the boy, and tiny stars for the little girl. Everyone enjoyed helping to make them and everyone really enjoyed eating them.
Biscuit: Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1 T baking powder, and 1/3 cup dry milk powder. Cut in 1/2 cup softened margarine with a fork or your hands. The texture should be like large crumbs. Pour in 3/4 cup water and mix gently. Pat out on a floured surface (1/4 inch thick) and cut into shapes. Layer biscuit, ham and cheese (also cut out with cookie cutter), and another biscuit. Bake at 475 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
