Scarborough Fair Biscuits

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme... :) These Simon & Garfunkel-inspired biscuits are crispy golden on the outside, crumbly tender on the inside, and have a lovely hint of Thanksgiving herbs. A very appetizing preview to the upcoming holiday!


3 C. all-purpose flour

1 C. whole wheat flour

1 tsp. salt

4 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. dried herbs (1/2 tsp. each: parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme)

10 Tbsp. butter

1 C. yogurt

1 C. milk, or more, as needed


  1. Grease 2 baking sheets. Preheat oven to 400

  2. Combine the flours, salt, baking powder, and herbs in a large bowl.

  3. Cut butter into tablespoon chunks and work it into the dry ingredients until crumbly. You can use a pastry blender or your hands for this step.

  4. Add yogurt and milk and mix well to create a dough. It may be kinda sticky, which is OK. You can add generous splashes of milk or water to pick up any dry flour at the bottom of the bowl.

  5. Using a couple large serving spoons or your hands, form the dough into small biscuits. Arrange about twelve on a baking sheet and flatten them slightly.

  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

  7. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Yield - approximately 30 biscuits

Only two weeks to Thanksgiving, everyone! Hopefully these herbed biscuits can tide us over until then. :)

'Til next time,
