Chive Cheese Biscuits

Chive Cheese Biscuits

"From Black Creek, British Columbia, Joan Baskin writes, 'These are the lightest biscuits I've ever baked. My husband loves them with a meal of macaroni and cheese and coleslaw.' Flecks of fresh chives and golden bits of cheddar cheese make the biscuits a savory standout."

  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt. Cut in cheese and shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk and chives until moistened.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; gently knead 8-10 times. Roll to 3/4-in. thickness; cut with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

The chives were overpowering, and yet the biscuits still seemed bland. Maybe cut back a bit, and add some Parmesan cheese as another reviewer said. Brushing with melted butter helps.

Recipe is bland, like everyone said. I added one clove of very finely diced garlic and it perked it right up. I also used less chives.

Nice texture but very bland.
