Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, thyme, savory, kelp, parsley, and basil in a large bowl.
  2. Cut in the butter with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Drizzle the buttermilk slowly over the flour mixture while tossing lightly with a fork, just until the flour mixture is moistened. Turn the dough out onto a floured board, and knead 4 to 5 times. Pat the dough into a circle, 3/4 inch thick, and cut biscuits with a 2 inch cookie cutter. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Serve warm.

Yum, great with a hearty stew on those cold nights! Its important to know that the kelp is instead of salt. It really just gives it a richer, and slightly salty flavour but these would be good with a pinch of salt as well. The kelp just adds extra minerals and iron.

I have to agree..light and fluffy...needs a little more sugar perhaps two teaspoons instead of 1 & 1/2. Would not need that if putting jam on them.

Very good! I don't make biscuits very often bc I'm not a fan of rolling out and cutting (just one of my least favorite things) but I had milk I needed to use and these looked good. So I perservered past my dislike of rolling pins and made them. I used fresh thyme bc I had it--for the rest of the herbs I used dried. These are pretty easy if I can get past the rolling out part, and taste quite good. I paired with sausage gravy (another recipe on here--Drop Biscuits with Suasage Gravy, subbing these biscuits for the Drop Biscuits) and bf was pleased, although he criticized my choice to make it for dinner. But hey--I'm the cook! Thanks for the recipe!

When I was a bachelor 50 years ago Pillsbury sold a variety of stews with herbed biscuits. Creamed chicken, tuna, et al. As a widower 40 years later, this is the answer I've been searching for!! Probably have to go to Trader Joe's for the kelp. Great single dish suppers!!

These were quick to make and came out just right. They were good with spaghetti.

Good recipe. I didn't have all of the herbs but they still had a lot of flavor. It is probably my fault for not letting the baking powder sink in longer but they came out of the oven rather flat.

Good,easy recipe. Goes well with homemade soup and stew. I've made these several times and they all get eaten. I use fresh herbs instead of dry and the flavour is so much better.
