Get Organized!

Gather your mise en place; get together all of the equipment needed for the recipe and gather all of the ingredients.

Get Prepped!

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Using a chef’s knife or scissors, finely chop the parsley leaves and chives.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

Add the butter and toss with dry ingredients. Working quickly, rub the butter between your fingers with the flour until it shrinks to about the size of a pea and the flour feels mealy.

Add the milk and herbs and stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until the dough just comes together. The dough should be rough and a little bit sticky to the touch.

Get Cooking!

Form the biscuits into rough balls approximately ⅛ cup measure. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment, leaving a few inches between each biscuit.

Bake biscuits until golden brown, about 15 – 20 minutes at 400°F. Remove from the sheet pan once finished and place on cooling wire.
