Herbed Buttermilk Biscuits #TwelveLoaves | Biscuit recipe

I generally have a black thumb. I’m all gung ho when I plant my herb garden in the spring…but by late July, I tend to forget the all important “watering” task. Thank goodness we’ve had regular rainfall this summer, so my little plot is flourishing. I had no excuse to miss August’s Twelve Loaves event since Summer Herbs was our chosen theme. But since I’d just returned from visiting my parents in Denver, I wanted to showcase my garden herbs in a quick and easy recipe. I remembered a flaky biscuit dough that required a pseudo-laminating. I snipped a few fragrant stems and leaves from my garden and baked up some Herbed Buttermilk Biscuits.
