Tuna Biscuits

8 oz. can tuna packed in oil
2 cups white or yellow cornmeal
2 cups flour
3/4 cup water
2/3 cup canola or vegetable oil 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, mix the cornmeal and flour. In a separate bowl, mix together the tuna with the oil, the water, vegetable oil and salt.

Roll the dough on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into small pieces and bake on a greased cookie sheet for 25-30 minutes.
