Garden Fresh Herb Biscuits

A simple baking powder biscuit with a few fresh herbs tossed in makes a tasty addition to a simple summer supper. Ready in a flash, give these a try and enjoy them fresh from the oven. Your family and friends will be pleased.
Garden Fresh Herb Biscuits
2 c. flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. butter
2/3 c. milk
2 Tbsp. green onion, chopped fine
1 Tbsp. mixed herbs, freshly snipped preferred (parsley, chives, rosemary, thyme, any or all)
Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center; add milk, green onion, and fresh herbs. Stir until dough clings together. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently. Roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a round cutter. Reroll as needed. Bake for 450 degrees, 10 - 12 minutes (depending upon the size biscuit cutter you use.) Serve warm with butter.

Oh, my mother and I were talking just this weekend about the joys of having sliced tomatoes in biscuits once the tomatoes ripen. I'm saving this recipe to go with mine!
