We are officially in prime baking season Diamonds! That makes me so excited especially since it has become a Fall hobby of mine when I’m trying to create something new and magical, as well as when I want something warm and comforting to enjoy when I’m watching a new Halloween movie. Now, I know what you’re thinking! “Briana used to say she was never a baking girl”. You’re right, I wasn’t, but I’m beginning to find the entire process quite interesting, fun, and definitely super cozy. When something is getting baked in the oven it fills your home with phenomenal smells that leaves you feeling like your kitchen is giving you a big heart warming hug. Now of course baking anything sweet is always wonderful, however, these garlic butter parmesan biscuits are something worth your while! They will go with any kind of soup, salad, chili, casserole, or even with an Italian Sunday Supper. This particular biscuit is just perfect for absolutely anything!
How to make the drop biscuit batter:
- 2 cups all purpose flour.
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder.
- 1/4 cup of finely grated parmesan cheese.
- A pinch of salt and lots of freshly cracked black pepper.
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder.
- 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder.
- 2 tablespoons of chives.
- 1 tablespoon pf parsley.
- 1/2 tablespoon of oregano.
- Whisk all of the dry ingredients together.
Then cut an entire stick of very cold, salted butter into small cubes and mix the dough with your hands; breaking up the butter as much as you can without over mixing. When the butter has gotten down to pea size pieces, it will be time to pour in your buttermilk.
- Pour in 1 cup of buttermilk.
Fold the buttermilk in gently with clean hands.
Your biscuit dough should look similar to mine. Once again, please be sure not to over mix. You do not want a tough, dry biscuit. That’s the worst!
- This dough will yield nine biscuits.
- If you see pieces of butter in the dough that is perfectly fine! That is what you want!
Go ahead and grab handfuls of your dough and literally drop them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
While your biscuits are baking you can then start to make the parmesan garlic butter to rub over top of each one as soon as they come out of the oven.
How to make the garlic butter:
- Melt 1/4 stick of butter in a small sauce pot over medium-low heat.
- 2 cloves of minced garlic.
- A pinch of parsley and chives.
- A handful of parmesan cheese.
- You can lower the heat and allow the butter to steep until the biscuits get finished baking.
Brush each biscuit with the parmesan garlic butter and garnish with more parmesan cheese and chopped parsley!
These are delectably beautiful biscuits that you’re going to want to make time and time again for every kind of dinner, date night, and of course a special occasion! They’re also great to pack up and send to a loved one to heat them up on a cold and rainy Autumn afternoon. It’ll definitely warm their heart and their belly with love and deliciousness.
