These Garlic Herb Butter Biscuits are so soft and fluffy, and tasty, too. I have to warn you though, if you make these, the smell in your house will be intoxicating. It will make you want to grab one right out of the oven, slather on some butter, and eat it, baked or not. (Don’t ask about how I know that. haha)

Just trust me. You will not be able to help yourself. They are that good!

I usually make biscuits at least once a week. It really just depends on what meal I have planned. I will confess, though, that sometimes it doesn’t matter about the meal because I have made them before just because. My house loves bread! Any and all varieties of bread. So, when I decide to make these for a snack let’s say, you can guarantee there are no complaints here and they are devoured.

When I made these biscuits, everyone (husband and kids) loved them and complimented me after their very first bite.

I think these would be the perfect side for any meal, especially with the holidays coming up. You can certainly double or triple the recipe, too. If you are looking for something more than just your regular biscuits, give them a try.

  • I used 2% milk and they turned out fine so you don’t have to use whole milk.
  • I did not grease my baking sheet.  My sheets are non stick so there was no need.
  • You can add other herbs to these biscuits or even shredded cheese.
