Categories: Pizza/Flatbread


  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 tsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1 cup whole buttermilk, chilled
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, place flour. Using a pastry blender, cut in cold butter until mixture is crumbly; stir in herbs. Gradually add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

  3. Turn out dough into a lightly floured surface. Pat dough into a rectangle, and cut into thirds. Stack portion on top of each other, and pat down into a rectangle again. Repeat process once. Pat or roll dough to 1-inch thickness. Using a 2 1/2-inch round cutter dipped in flour, cut dough without twisting cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on prepared pan. Freeze until cold, about 10 minutes.

  4. In a small bowl, stir together melted butter and garlic salt; brush onto biscuits.

  5. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Brush with garlic butter again. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
