Step 1

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and pepper.

Step 3

Using a pastry cutter or your fingertips, work in the pieces of butter into the flour until; the dough is crumbly and resembles small peas.

Step 4

Add the herbs and the buttermilk (a bit at a time), stirring just to blend well.

Step 5

Place the dough on a lightly floured surface, and press into and circle about 1/2-inch thick, with your fingers.

Step 6

Cut biscuit shapes with a biscuit cutter or a floured glass, placing them on an ungreased baking sheet.

Step 7

Gently reshape the dough, and repeat until no more dough is left.

Step 8

Brush the tops of the biscuits with a small amount of melted butter and bake in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 9

Serve warm, with pats of butter or cheese spread, if desired.

Tips & Variations

  • Note: Biscuits can be made in advance, and rewarmed easily; or left just a few minutes underbaked, frozen, then finished in the oven to thaw and cook nicely till done.



These biscuits are yummy! I made them to eat with my chicken pot pie. The spices went so good with the chicken in my pot pie. Thank you Sue!
