These savory biscuits bake up golden and tender. The blend of herb seasonings is irresistible. Keep the convenient seasoning mix on hand for a variety of uses.—Jane Everett, Pinehurst, North Carolina

Ingredients

  • SEASONING MIX:
  • 2 tablespoon each dried oregano, marjoram and basil
  • 4 teaspoons dried savory
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • BISCUITS:
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

Directions

Combine seasoning mix ingredients. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place.
For biscuits, saute 1 tablespoon mix and onion in 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet until onion is tender; set aside.
In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Combine egg, milk and onion mixture; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10-15 times. Roll to 3/4-in. thickness; cut with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Melt remaining butter; brush over biscuits. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450° for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 6 biscuits (1/2 cup seasoning mix).
Editor's Note: Seasoning mix is enough for eight batches of biscuits. It may also be used on chicken, pork, beef and steamed vegetables.
