Honey and Herb Biscuits (Vegetarian)  Makes About 2 dozen

(Saveur Magazine)


7½ cups flour

¼ 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 ½″ cubes and chilled

2 cups buttermilk

¾ cup half-and-half

¼ cup honey


1. 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.

2. 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.
