What a lovely spin on a classic biscuit.
This recipe has been in my “must try” recipe box ever since I started collecting recipes when I was young. I have no idea where it came from but the writing is mine so I must have copied it from somewhere.
Quick. Before frost takes your fresh herbs. Make these!
Garden Fresh Dinner Biscuits
1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup all – purpose flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 T minced fresh parsley
2 T minced fresh chives
2 T finely grated carrot
4 T cold butter
3/4 cup cold milk
Combine the flours, baking powder, salt, and herbs/veggies. Cut in the cold butter with a fork and knife until it resembles fine crumbs. Gently stir in the milk to form a ball of dough. Lightly flour the counter and form the dough into a 7 inch square. Cut into nine squares and place them one quarter inch apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 450° oven for about 10 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly browned. Serve immediately.
Yield: 9 medium biscuits
