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.

  • 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.
