Herb Biscuits


I have been to a few restaurants lately where the chef is trying new twists on the standard Southern biscuit.  I figured, with a little research and the fresh herbs out of my garden, I could do this as well.  Here is my twist on Julia Child's herb biscuits.

Herb Biscuits
3 cups all-purpose flour 
2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon soda
8 tablespoons chilled shortening
4 tablespoons chives, minced
4 tablespoons rosemary, minced
4 tablespoons parsley, minced
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cup buttermilk

Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl.  Cut in the shortening.

 Add minced herbs.

Stir in the eggs& buttermilk.

Turn onto a floured surface& knead mixture briefly

 Pat or roll out to 1/2" thickness& cut into rounds.
Bake on an ungreased baking pan at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Pin It!
