The first year of my blog I posted one of my favorite baked goods to date – these amazing Goat Cheese Biscuits ((the recipe is from famous chef Art Smith)). I still bake them often and every time I make them I fall in love all over again. They are these amazingly light and fluffy biscuits filled with goat cheese and buttermilk. They are simple and quick and come together in minutes. Bonus — These are “drop” biscuits, so you just stir the ingredients together and drop them in a muffin tin. No rolling, kneading, cutting. Yes. Yes. Yes.
The last time I made these I felt like they needed an extra punch of something. One of my good friends Kristin — from Life & Food Blog — suggested some type of herb. I immediately thought of Rosemary. I have bunches and bunches of Rosemary in my backyard so I took it right away and threw a huge bunch into the biscuit dough. One little bite and I knew I made the right decision. The Rosemary truly packed the perfect punch. It wasn’t too overwhelming but added a great depth of flavor that went perfectly with the goat cheese.
These truly are my favorite biscuits to bake e.v.e.r. Not just favorite biscuits, but favorite savory baked good. Once you make them you’ll be hooked. Trust me. #makethesenow
