READY IN: 42mins
YIELD: 8 biscuits




  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  • Add the butter and mix on low speed until the butter is the size of peas. (This is a very important step for light, fluffy biscuits.).
  • With the mixer on low, add the half-and-half and beat until just mixed-do not over-mix.
  • Add the chives and mix until just combined.
  • Dump the dough out on a well-floured board and knead lightly into a rectangle 3/4 inch thick.
  • Cut out rounds with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush with the egg wash.
  • Bake for 20 to 22 minutes, until the tops are browned and the insides are firm.
  • Serve warm.
