Easy Cheddar Chive Biscuits
Recipe type: Biscuit, Scone
Total time: 
Serves: 4
A flaky, savory biscuit perfect with soups, stews, chilis, and salads.
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
  • ¼ tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup cold butter, diced
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • ⅓ cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Mix together flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, sugar, and salt.
  3. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese and chives.
  4. Add milk and stir with a fork until mixture forms a soft, ragged dough.
  5. Place on a floured surface and knead 8-10 times, until dough is a smooth ball. Pat or roll dough into a 6" square. Cut into 6-9 squares, depending on the size you like (I usually do 6).
  6. Place 2" apart on prepared baking sheet and bake 11-13 minutes, until lightly golden. Serve warm with butter or cream cheese.
Store extras in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. For longer storage, freeze in an airtight container.
