jalapeno rosemary biscuits

I love savory biscuits.  I might even love them more than "breakfast" biscuits.  My husband... He's a breakfast biscuit type of man.  
I like to do these with dinner, specifically when I do my shrimp dinners that have a sauce that needs soaking up! 
When we went to a restaurant that had these, I was hoping for a little more jalapeño, so I did that when I got home. I also added rosemary. I love rosemary, and I think it adds something to a dinner biscuit. As far as the jalapeño peppers, you can add as little or as much as you want to brave! 


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cubed
  • 1/4 cup diced jalapeño peppers (seeded)
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp crushed rosemary


  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl
  • Cut the butter into the mixture with a pastry cutter
  • Mix in the buttermilk a little at a time 
  • Do not overwork the dough, but mix it until it comes together into a ball 
  • Lightly flour a work surface 
  • Roll the dough out about 1/2 inch thick 
  • Using a small biscuit cutter, cut out your biscuits 
  • Reroll scraps and make additional biscuits 
  • Bake for about 15 minutes and serve warm!
