Herbed Trefoil BiscuitsHerbed biscuits are not hard to make. Start with a basic biscuit recipe, such as my Baking Powder Biscuits, stir some fresh chopped herbs into the batter, and voila!

Sometimes, though, you want a fancier appearance for your biscuits. It only takes a little extra time to step the look up a notch.

These biscuits are baked in a muffin pan. Each biscuit is divided into three parts before baking. Each third is dipped in butter and herbs, and the three parts are put together in a muffin cup. As they bake, the three parts swell together and merge making a single biscuit with a trefoil top and herbs mixed through–lovely!
