Cheddar-Chive Biscuits

Yields 30 biscuits

6 cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup baking powder
¾ tsp salt
8 oz white cheddar cheese, grated
⅓ cup sliced chives (or green onions)
1½ cup cold salted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for brushing
2½ cups buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cheese, and chives in a food processor. Pulse until everything is mixed together. Add butter and pulse until mostly incorporated but with a few remaining chunks of butter. Pour in buttermilk while pulsing, stopping just when the dough comes together. (Add a little more buttermilk if dough is overly dry.)
  3. Drop dough onto a baking sheet in ¼ cup portions (bigger if you’d like) and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  4. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with more chives.
  5. If you do not have a food processor, cut together the dry ingredients with the butter, then stir in the other ingredients.
