1 ratings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small bits
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, 5 ounces
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped


Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 425°F. Grease a baking sheet with butter, oil, or cooking spray.


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender, your hands, or two knives until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add 1 cup of the Cheddar and the chives to the flour mixture and toss to combine. Using a rubber spatula, fold the buttermilk into the flour mixture until all of the flour is moistened.


Using an ice cream scoop or a large spoon, scoop the mixture and place on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup Cheddar over the biscuits. Bake until light golden brown and firm to the touch, 13 to 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
