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.
These make a great dinner starter and I’ll definitely keep this recipe on hand to make again.
Cheddar Chive Biscuits
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp sugar
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 6 tbsp (3/4 cup) cold unsalted butter cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1 2/3 cups grated cheddar cheese
- 4 chives finely chopped
- 1 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- 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.
- 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.
