Recipe by ellie_

These were so good with chili (we had them with Crock Pot Cowboy Stew) and a great way to use up some garden chives! Recipe source: Saveur (April 2007)

Fun to make in my food processor (pulse to cut the butter, then pulse to mix in cheese and chives). I used unsalted butter and the full amount of salt and it was a little salty. I also made the mistake of cooking them on the bottom rack so the bottoms of the biscuits got a little more brown than I like. Toddler Loved them :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450-degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl combine dry ingredients together (flour - baking soda).
  3. Cut in butter using two knives or a pastry cutter until mixture is about the size of peas.
  4. Stir in buttermilk, cheese and chives, stirring with a fork to form a loose dough.
  5. Turn dough out onto a floured board, kneading dough a few times (about 10) and then pat into a 6-inch x 9-inch rectangle; fold into thirds like a letter and then pat into a 6 x 9 inch rectangle again.
  6. Dip edges of 3-inch biscuit cutter into flour (I used a coffee mug) and cut out 6 biscuits; transferring biscuits to a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with Pam or lined with parchment paper. Form and cut dough for another biscuit or two (I ended up whit 7 biscuits).
  7. Brush tops of biscuits with cream.
  8. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until biscuits are browned.
