  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped thyme leaves
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped rosemary leaves
  • 1⁄3 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1⁄2 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs, divided


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, thyme, and rosemary. Cut butter into the flour with a pastry cutter or large fork until mixture has a coarse crumb consistency. Stir in milk and 1 egg until just moistened.
