Biscuits work effectively with number of contemporary herbs
The very considered spring has me beginning to cook dinner extra with contemporary herbs once more. I usually have just a few pots of herbs rising close to the kitchen windowsill.
I’ve been utilizing numerous thyme currently for the lemony, contemporary pop of taste it offers a dish. And it really works effectively in my herbed biscuit recipe. Different contemporary herbs, corresponding to contemporary parsley, or chives make good choices, as effectively.

Stir till mixed for a easy honey-butter unfold to serve with the biscuits.
