High-Rise Herb Biscuits
Jazzing up simple cream biscuits with cheese and dill sounds easy, but the results are usually heavy, greasy, and bland. We use two leaveners-and a careful cutting technique-to ensure tall, fluffy biscuits every time.
Why This Recipe Works
Jazzing up a simple cream biscuit recipe with cheese and dill sounds easy, but the results are usually heavy, greasy, and bland. We wanted our High-Rise Herb Biscuits recipe to produce light biscuits with a perfect balance of herbs and cheese. A small amount of dill was all we needed for a whole batch of biscuits, and while Parmesan cheese proved too mild on its own, it tasted great when combined with dill Havarti. A surprise ingredient—cottage cheese—added a nice tang and lightened the texture of our High-Rise Herb Biscuits.
