“There are lots of biscuit recipes but the savoury flavour of fresh herbs make these unique! I've itemized the ingredients from Harrowsmith Country Life but use whatever herbs appeal to you ........ or whatever you have in the pantry. Last night, I used basil, parsley & green onions. BUT, if you're forced to use dried herbs, just cut the quantity in half.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375F & line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl; stir in herbs & 1 cup of the cheese.
  3. Whisk egg & milk together in a small bowl; pour over the dry ingredients & stir until just combined.
  4. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; pat into a square that is approximately 8" and 2" thick.
  5. Slice into 8 rectangular pieces about 4" x 2" & transfer to the baking sheet.
  6. Brush with a little milk & sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake in oven until golden brown, approximately 18 to 20 minutes.
  7. Although you can serve these at room temperature, I prefer them warm!
