West or East or Midwest, it's an indisputable fact that biscuits are too good to refuse. These bars — flaky dough with cheese and butter — are easy to make in a one pan-one step way. Buying top-quality Parmesan and grating it yourself will make a big difference in taste. This is a good recipe to have for lots of different occasions.

 Big Sky Cooking

1/3 cup (2/3 stick) butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Butter a 9-inch square baking dish.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cheese, sugar, baking powder, parsley, and basil with a fork, using a light touch. Stir in just enough milk to moisten and form a soft dough.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and lightly knead a few times until smooth. Roll into an 8- by 6-inch rectangle. Cut in twelve 4- by 1-inch strips.
Place each strip in baking dish, turning to coat with melted butter. Arrange the strips in two rows; bake until browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
