in medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder & salt
pour the oil & hot water into the dry ingredients & mix w rubber spatula until fully combined & a dough is formed
if the batter is too dry, add more hot water, 2 tbs at a time, until the dough is sticky
dust the counter w spelt flour
place the dough on the prepared surface & drag it thru the flour
pat the dough gently until it is 1 inch thick
using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut out the biscuits & arrange on the baking sheet
