Homemade Butter Biscuits

Homemade Butter Biscuits

2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

½ cup (1 stick) cold butter, grated

1 cup milk

Optional:

½ tsp rosemary

½ tsp parsley

½ tsp chives

½ tsp thyme

 

Heat oven to 450͒.

Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and herbs (if desired). Mix in butter, then add milk. Stir to combine.

Turn out onto floured surface or silicone pastry mat and kneed a few times to fully incorporate ingredients. Add small amounts of flour or drops of milk as necessary so dough will hold together but not be sticky.

Pat dough to ⅔” thickness and cut with a 2” biscuit cutter or drinking glass.

Place biscuits on greased or parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.
