Cheddar Chive Biscuits

With more cheddar cheese to use up and a bunch of fresh chives courtesy of Baby Bro’s co-worker, I was inspired to make some homemade drop biscuits. The recipe was so easy to follow and quick to put together.

I made these biscuits in a food processor and as a result, the chives and cheese got a little too chopped up for my personal preference. I would have liked seeing small chopped up chives inside by biscuits, but instead, there are just specks of green. The biscuits also sat in the oven a tad too long (I checked on them three minutes before the time on the recipe, and they were already starting to overcook!), but they were still salvageable.


I loved the flavor of these biscuits and the sharp cheddar and chive combination is perfect. These biscuits were moist, tender, and I gobbled down three as soon as I finished taking these photos.


These make a great dinner starter and I’ll definitely keep this recipe on hand to make again.

Total time: 23 mins
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 2/3 cups of grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 chives, finely chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Put flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a food processor. Then add in the butter and mix for about 10-20 seconds until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add in Cheddar and chives. Add milk and mix until dough forms, about another 20 seconds.
  3. Separate dough into 14 pieces. Drop dough onto baking sheet lines with parchment paper or silpat mat. I shaped my dough between my palms so they would have a smooth circular shape. Drop dough iabout 2 inches apart onto baking sheet. Bake in middle oven until golden, 12-15 minutes.

  1. I made cheese-chive dropped biscuits last week and they were amazing! I can definitely advise to have the chives not so finely chopped, it looks really nice 🙂 Yours look really ymmy as well, hmm I think I will make them again this weekend!

    • I adored these and will definitely make them again, but will probably leave larger chunks of chives next time in mine.
