So I totally love valentine’s day but I’m also a believer in showing the people you love that you love them everyday! What better way than with some delicious herb biscuits infused with genmaicha that are heart shaped!
Feel free to use whatever herbs you’d like but I used rosemary, thyme, dill and some garlic. I chopped them all together using a food processor!
I found that folding the dough is really important to get a tall and flaky biscuit!
These biscuits are so cute, buttery and the herbs add an incredible taste!
Start off by heating the oven to 450 F
Heat up the milk and when it starts to bubble, take it off the stove and mix in the genmaicha tea and let it sit for a minute then strain and set the milk aside for use later in the recipe.
Mix together the dry ingredients and the fresh herbs mixture!
Make sure the butter is cold and cut into cubes. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter, 2 knives or even your hands! You want the butter and the flour to resemble crumbs but make sure than not ALL the butter is totally mixed in!
Add in the milk and stir to combine then take the dough and put it on a floured surface.
You want to take the dough and fold it half then smooth our a bit. Do that a few times and this will give the biscuits some volume!
Don’t roll out the dough, pat it down and then take a heart shaped cookie cutter and cut out your shapes.
Use some parchment paper on a baking sheet and cook the biscuits for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown!
These are really good with butter or probably with any other savory topping! I personally could have used a bit more salt in these biscuits so I suggest enjoying with salted butter or irish butter!
