The Besto Pesto Biscuits

I love this time of year. It's cool enough that you yearn for something warm at most meals. But still close enough to Summer that fresh fruit, veggies and herbs are still plentiful. That's where the inspiration for these biscuits comes from. They can easily be made gluten-free. Just use rice flour instead of wheat. But be sure to let the biscuits cool before you remove them from the pan, or they'll crumble to pieces

Pesto Biscuits


  • 2 cups flour 
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt 
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese 
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic (depending on size) grated 
  • a handful of fresh basil leaves, minced 
  • 3/4 cup milk 


preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Mix all the ingredients together, either in a food processor or in a mixing bowl by hand. 
  2. Drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. 
  3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. 

 That's it. Enjoy. :)

These sound awesome! We love pesto. Every year we make a large batch and freeze it so we can have it handy for different recipes.

Thanks for recipe, will give this a try.

I've never heard of these, they sound amazing. Different from the usual roll or slice of bread at a meal, thanks =)
