Parmesan Herb Drop Biscuits

(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Pizza/Flatbread


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 heaping tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter, cold, cut into small pieces, plus 2 tablespoons, melted, for brushing
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 3/4 cup whole milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Put the flour, baking powder, salt and garlic powder in a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Add the cold butter and pulse until the dry ingredients and the butter are mostly combined. (If you do not have a food processor, this can be done with a pastry cutter.)

  3. Add the Parmesan, parsley, oregano and thyme. Drizzle in the milk and pulse (or stir in with a wooden spoon) until the mixture has just turned into a dough. Be careful not to overmix, as the biscuits will become tough when baked if you do.

  4. Using 2 large spoons, drop 1/2-cup sized balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. This will make 6 generously sized biscuits.

  5. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes, depending on your oven. Brush the warm biscuits with the melted butter. Enjoy!
