Parmesan Parsley Biscuits
These are easy enough to be whipped up right before dinner…I cut mine on the large side, for a total of 4.
Ingredients (makes four 2-inch biscuits; can be doubled)
1 cup flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup + 1 tbsp milk (if doubling, use 3/4 cup milk)
Preheat oven to 450.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Drop in butter, and cut the butter into the flour mixture until it the butter chunks are the size of peas and the rest resembles coarse meal. With a fork, stir in the grated cheese and parsley.
All at once, add the milk and stir with a fork until it’s just moistened. With your hands, gather the dough and knead against the side of the bowl 5-10 times.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface and shape into a 4×4 inch square, about 1 inch thick. Cut square into quarters to make 4 biscuits.
Place biscuits on a baking sheet and bake until tops are browned, 10-12 minutes. Serve warm.
