Biscuits = weakness. When I make them fresh I know I have to share but if I had my way I would eat them all without sharing a single one. Ok, I know that makes me sound ruthless but they are biscuits people. It’s a hot commodity. I’m sure you understand. Now, my grandma used to make slammin’ biscuits and I would cover those puppies in either sausage gravy (SOOOOO GOOD!) or slather them in butter. Of course, I’m a lover of butter on all. the. things. but especially on hot and fresh from the oven biscuits.
Now, instead of just making your average carby treat I opted to throw in LOTS of fresh herbs. I almost always have tons of fresh thyme and rosemary on hand and hate when I use half and throw the rest away. I know I shouldn’t waste food but I’m not a huge fan of eating rosemary once it has turned black – right?
When my little brother was little he would take his biscuits and basically drown them in honey. I swear the honey to biscuit ratio was almost 50%. Soon enough I picked up on his honey drizzling ways and ended up LOVING it on hot biscuits. However, as you all know I have a few sugar issues (darn you PCOS) so I can’t really smother everything I was in honey. That is why I’m now obsessed with Truvia Nectar. This stuff tastes just like honey but with half the calories!
Homemade Herb Biscuits
These super simple homemade herb biscuits are delicious when served warm with lots of butter and a drizzle (or two!) of sweet Truvia Nectar. If you have never made biscuits before you'll in awe at how easy they are to make!
Yield: 8 biscuits
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
- 3/4 cup cold milk
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
- 2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
- Whipped butter, for topping
- Truvia Nectar, for topping
Preheat oven to 450 degrees set a sheet pan aside.
In a large bowl add flour, baking powder, and kosher salt. Stir to combine.
Add cold butter into the flour and toss to coat each butter piece. Using a pastry blender blend the butter into the flour until the flour has pea sized pieces of butter throughout.
Add in the milk and stir to combine, the mixture will be very sticky.
Flour your counter and add the dough to the dough to the counter. Add a little flour on top of the dough and flour your hands. Knead the dough about 10 times to bring it together. If it's too sticky simply add a bit more flour to the top until you can work the dough into a rectangle that is about 1-1/2 inch thick. For my biscuits, I just use a sharp knife and cut into 8 pieces BUT you can use a biscuit cutter if you want.
Add biscuits to your baking sheet, brush the tops with heavy cream and bake for about 10-15 minutes or until the tops are golden.
Serve warm with butter and Truvia Nectar.
