        Sift dry ingredients together. Cut butter into
   tablespoons and, with a pastry blender, blend into dry
   ingredients until texture is that of cornmeal. Stir
   parsley, chives, and oregano/thyme with 1/2 cup
   buttermilk into beaten egg and add mixture to flour
   mixture. Stir quickly, adding remainder of buttermilk
   as necessary until dough forms a ball. Turn onto
   floured surface and knead once. Let dough rest for a
   minute, then roll out to 3/4 thickness. Cut into 2
   rounds. Place biscuits on buttered baking sheet, 1
   apart. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until
   golden brown.
