Mini Sandwiches on Sage Drop Biscuits

It was the very middle of the night and I had to stay awake to feed the kittens. To keep myself occupied, I decided to make some biscuits. I picked this recipe because I had some fresh sage that needed to be used up. The original recipe is at I think I did something wrong when I made the biscuits because they came out quite deflated, and rather dry. To salvage them I made mini-sandwiches, which were quite good. I made cream cheese-walnut-poppy seed sandwiches and goat cheese-veggie bacon-tomato-baby spinach sandwiches.
Sage Biscuits:
2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup oil or melted butter
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup fresh sage, minced
Preheat the oven to 475F. (That seems rather high to me so you may want to use a lower temperature.) Sift together the dry ingredients and place in a mixing bowl. Combine oil, egg, milk, and sage in a separate bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ones. Combine with fork until just mixed.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto baking sheet. Bake 8-12 minutes until lightly browned.
