2 cups (500 mL) flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) thyme, crumbled
1/4 tsp (1 mL) rosemary, crumbled
1/4 tsp (1 mL) basil, crumbled
1/4 cup (50 mL) butter, chilled
3/4 cup (175 mL) buttermilk

Combine first 7 ingredients (flour through basil) in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Stir in buttermilk just until combined. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 5 times. Roll out dough 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick. Using a floured 2 inch (5 cm) cookie cutter, cut dough into rounds. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400ºF (200ºC) for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 1 dozen biscuits.
