  • Mix in buttermilk until a sticky dough forms; you may need to add up to 1 tablespoon more buttermilk.

  • Drop 8 mounds (each a scant 1/3 cup) onto a nonstick baking sheet; lightly pat tops to flatten slightly.

  • Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm.

These are really light, delicate, and just delicious. It is time-consuming to stem the fresh thyme, but it is worth it.
