Thyme biscuits with whipped butter or paired with strawberry ham.
Cut the butter into small cubes.
In a mixing bowl add the flour, salt, baking powder, salt, thyme and sugar.
Mix everything together and then add the butter to the bowl.
Use your fingers to cut the butter into the flour (when it’s done correctly it will have a similar consistency to wet sand).
Next add the milk to the bowl and mix everything together with your hands.
The dough should form a ball.
Add the dough to a floured surface and roll the dough to a 2/3rds “ thickness.
Cut the dough with a round cookie cutter or cut it into triangular shapes. You will need to form the scrapes of dough back into a ball after, roll it out again and cut it again. Repeat if necessary until you use all of the dough.
Mix the egg together with the thyme and use a pastry brush to coat the tops of the biscuits (be sure to allow some of the thyme leaves to stick to the top of the biscuit0.
Next sprinkle salt over the egg washed biscuits.
Bake in a 400-degree oven for 16 minutes.
