These savory biscuits are tall, fluffy, and filled with sharp cheddar and green onion flavor.
Serves: 12 biscuits
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into ¼ inch pieces and chilled
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk, chilled
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 6 green onions, white and light green parts trimmed and minced
  1. Preheat the oven to 500°F. Butter a 9” cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Sprinkle the butter pieces over the top, and cut them in with a pastry blender of two forks. You’ll be done when the largest pieces are the size of small peas.
  3. Stir in the cheese and green onions, then pour in the buttermilk and stir together with a wooden spoon.
  4. Use a lightly oiled ¼ cup measure to scoop out equal portions of the dough and place them in the 9” cake pan. You should have 3 in the center and 9 around the sides. Bake for 5 minutes, then drop the oven temperature to 450°F and bake for another 15 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown.
  5. Take the biscuits out of the oven, and brush them with the extra 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Let them cool in the pan for 2 minutes before removing them from the pan.
