Categories     Cheese     Leafy Green

Number Of Ingredients 12

1/4 cup butter, softened
6 tablespoons butter, cold
3 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, lightly beaten


  • Beat softened butter (1/4 cup), chives, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl until well-combined and smooth.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  • Stir flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Cut cold butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles oatmeal. Add Cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese; toss to coat.
  • Stir buttermilk into flour mixture until dough is just-moistened.
  • Turn dough out onto a floured work surface and gently knead until dough comes together, about 6 to 8 times.
  • Roll dough into a 9-inch square (1/2 inch thick) with a floured rolling pin. Cut dough lengthwise into 4 strips and crosswise into 6 strips. Place biscuits on a baking sheet and brush tops with beaten egg.
  • Bake biscuits in the preheated oven until golden, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a rack and cool until warm, at least 15 minutes.
  • Serve biscuits with chive butter.
  • Note: You can substitute hot sauce for the cayenne pepper, if desired.
  • Note: Chive butter can be made 2 days ahead and kept chilled, covered. Bring to room temperature before using.

These biscuits were a complete disaster. They were dry, crumbly, and had no flavor. I would not recommend this recipe.

I'm allergic to dairy, so I used vegan butter and cheese. The biscuits still turned out great!

I didn't have any chives on hand, so I used green onions instead. They turned out great!

These biscuits were a little too dry for my taste, but otherwise they were good.

I'm not a huge fan of cheddar biscuits, but these were actually really good. The chive butter really made all the difference.

I've tried many cheddar biscuit recipes, but this one is by far the best. The biscuits are so easy to make and they always turn out perfectly. The chive butter is a great addition and really takes these biscuits to the next level.

These cheddar biscuits with chive butter were absolutely delicious! The biscuits were light and fluffy, with a perfectly crispy exterior. The chive butter added a wonderful savory flavor that really complemented the cheddar cheese. I will definitely
