PARMESAN PAN BISCUITS
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.

1/3 cup (2/3 stick) butter, melted
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil leaves
About 1 cup whole milk
|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.|
