Homemade biscuits recipe
I just made up this homemade biscuit recipe this evening, and I wasn’t sure exactly how it was going to taste. As the biscuits were cooking, the kitchen smelled exactly like my favorite pizzeria, so I was hopeful. I almost burned my fingers trying to get a taste of one of my parmesan herb biscuits, and it was great!
These biscuits aren’t pretty because they don’t have a nice, round shape. That’s because I wanted a really moist dough. I could have added more flour and created a prettier biscuit, but I was more concerned with flavor. Keep this in mind when you’re creating the dough.
Holle’s Parmesan Herb Biscuits recipe
What you’ll need:
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- ½ cup plain flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons dried Italian herb blend
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 heaping tablespoon shortening
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon sour cream
- ½ cup buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons grated onion
- ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees and coat baking sheet with shortening.
In a large bowl, combine flours, baking powder, salt, dried Italian herbs, onion powder, sugar, and paprika.
Cut in shortening, butter, and sour cream until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk. Mix until dough begins to form, then add onion, parmesan, and garlic. Add enough regular milk to make a soft, sticky, elastic dough.
Pull off sections of dough and place on baking sheet, about 1 ½ inches apart. This recipe will make 10-12 biscuits.
Bake on top rack of oven until biscuits are light brown.
Remove from oven and cover immediately with a damp dish towel.
