CARROT HERB DINNER BISCUITS
Carrot Herb Dinner Biscuits
- Cooking Time: 14
- Servings: 12
- 1 & 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup cornmeal
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp dried basil leaves
- 1 tsp dried parsley flakes
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 c margarine or butter, softened
- 1/2 cup shredded carrots (about 2 carrots)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 egg
Preheat your oven to 400 and grease two cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients (not the carrots.)
Using a fork, cut in the butter until it resembles course crumbs.
Stir in carrots.
Add egg and milk, stirring until just moistened. Over mixing will make tough biscuits.
Drop by 1/4 cupful onto greased baking sheets and bake 12-14 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
This makes about 12 biscuits.

Ah well, you only live once.
These biscuits certainly do not skimp on the butter, or the tasty herb-flavor. And they are super simple to make.
