Serves: Makes about 32 biscuits
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 

Ingredients

4 cups self-rising flour
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoon freshly chopped herbs, such as parsley, chives or sage
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese (about 2 ounces)
2 cups buttermilk

Instructions

Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Line two rimmed sheet pans with parchment paper or nonstick silicone baking mats.

Place the flour in a medium bowl. Using a fork, cut in the butter until crumbs are the size of peas. Stir in the herbs and cheese. Using the fork, stir in the buttermilk to form a soft dough.

Drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake until lightly browned, about 23 minutes. Transfer to a rack and serve warm.
