How to Make Herb Biscuits
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stir together dry ingredients. When well mixed add milk and butter. Stir quickly with a fork to mix.
Pat dough out gently to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out biscuits. Bake for about 10 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet. Biscuits should be puffed and golden brown. Brush with more melted butter and serve hot.
- DUMPLING VARIATION: Drop unbaked dough on top of stew or soup. Cover pot and cook for about 10 minutes without peeking. Remove lid and check done-ness. Dumplings will look moist outside but inside should be cooked like the inside of the biscuits.
