Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift dry ingredients together; using a pastry cutter, 2 knives or a food processor, cut in butter until only small bits are visible.
  2. Add cheddar & green onions, tossing until evenly distributed; pour in a cup of buttermilk or sour cream & stir until dough forms.
  3. Increase liquid if necessary - I used 11/2 cups of full fat sour cream.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, pat until ½ inch thick & cut with a biscuit or cookie cutter or a glass.
  5. Place about 1 inch apart on a parchment lined baking sheet (or use cooking spray) and bake above the centre of a preheated 450F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.

Measurement for buttermilk should be less, with 1 cup itself it becomes sticky. There is no spice element in the recipe. I added finely chopped green chillies, it it turned out fine.

They would have been good if the measurements weren't completely off. Too bad!

These had a great flavor but the dough was quite sticky. I had to add more flour. I used the buttermilk instead of the sour cream. Perhaps next time I will try the sour cream. Thank you.
