Honey and Herb Biscuits
Instead of plain dinner rolls, we like to serve these fluffy biscuits, fragrant with rosemary and thyme.
Yield: makes about 2 dozen biscuits
- 7 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1⁄4 cup finely chopped rosemary
- 3 tbsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. finely chopped thyme leaves
- 2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 12 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into 1/2″ cubes and chilled
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 3⁄4 cup half-and-half
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- Heat oven to 375°. Whisk together flour, rosemary, baking powder, thyme, salt, baking soda, and pepper in a large bowl; add butter, and using your fingers, rub butter into flour mixture until pea-size crumbles form.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, half-and-half, and honey; add to dry ingredients, and using a fork, stir together ingredients until just combined. Transfer dough to a well-floured work surface, and pat into a 1″-thick disk. Using a 3″ round cutter, cut out biscuits and transfer to a parchment paper—lined baking sheet, arranging them so their edges touch. Reroll scraps and cut out more biscuits until all the dough is used. Bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes.
