First Fresh Herbs

One of my favourite signs of spring is the fresh herbs shooting through the soft soil.  I can't wait to snip some and make something good to eat.

So I decided to make some cheddar chive buttermilk biscuits.  I was already making some chicken pot pies for the freezer and for my friend, Anne's husband.  She is going out west to visit her daughter soon so I'm making some freezer meals for her husband, Wayne.

I thought it would be nice to top them with biscuits instead of pastry.

The rest I popped in the oven.

Boy, are they good.  So light and tender.

They have a nice tang of chives.  Such a bright green flavour!  If you want to make some for yourself, the recipe is on my food blog.  This time I didn't use my food processor.  If you do it all by hand, may I suggest that you grate the cold margarine or butter?  Don't handle it too much so it will be tender.

I'm joining Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage for her Favourite Thing linky party.
