These are more of a breadstick than a biscuit although I guess you could roll them out and cut them into biscuit shapes. I got this recipe from a Land-O-Lakes cookbook that I received pages from every month. These are great with pasta or soup. A favorite in our house. Very flavorful :-)

Thanks for this! I used oregano instead of basil and added almost a cup of parmesan (I love the stuff!). I also added salt and a sprinkling of other dried herbs. Very tasty, but it definitely has to be served with liquid as they are a bit dry. I will try them as a topping for a stew/hotpot type thing.

- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
