Thyme Biscuits

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by lucid501

This comes from Real Simple magazine, September 06. I haven't tried it yet but they look wonderful! The mayonnaise biscuits I've had before have always been yummy, so I'm think fresh herbs could only make them yummier! If you try this before me, let me know what you think :)

The flavor of the thyme really comes through on these. I don't think they rose the way they were supposed to, but even with them being flat they tasted great. I will be making these again as I like how they tasted and to see what it was that caused them not to raise when baked.
