    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 :)

      Absolutely delicious!!! These biscuits were so quick and easy to make and tasted just fantastic! They were flaky and moist on the inside with a lovely crunchy crust! The chives and cheddar go so well together and make for a very hearty, yummy taste! I made a little mistake, cause a few minutes after putting them in the oven I realised I had forgotten to add the cheese to the dough, so I just went ahead and put it on top. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner of a recipe with us, ellie_! I will surely make it again and again! Made and reviewed for PRMR Holiday Special Decembre 09.

      Excellent! Rich (but lite), exquisite flavor and aroma, easy-as-could-be, and very quick in and out of the oven! We had a spring snow storm today that dumped 9 1/2 INCHES of snow on us but that didn't stop me from shoveling out my chives and getting a good handful (not a half-cup though) that was FRESH! Thanks for the good directions on rolling out the dough (otherwise I would've made a BIG rectangle!!), this way it's JUST the right size. I ended up with 8 LARGE biscuits. Ellie, you've got a KEEPER here!
