Buttermilk Chive Biscuits (R.R 3.2)

In my last rolling recipe post, I made bite sized fully loaded baked potatoes which included chive. I personally think chive is an under utilized herb and I try to use it as often as I can in my recipes. It is such a fragrant and delicious addition that imparts a mild onion like flavour. Growing up my grandmother grew a ton of chive in the garden and I spent much of the growing season eating chive pancakes. This is still a popular Chinese dish that you can find on dim sum menus.

These savoury biscuits are so delicious and my youngest even broke her moratorium on eating anything green to gobble these up. I decided not to add cheese to this recipe because I like the delicate flavour of the biscuits and feared that the cheese would compete with the chive too much. However, if you wish to add cheese, I am sure they would be absolutely yummy as well.

You will need:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 stick cold unsalted butter, diced
3/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup chopped fresh chives

1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

Egg wash (mix 1 egg with 1 tablespoon water)

Round cookie cutter or glass

biscuit ingredients

Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit

1) In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder. Using a paddle attachment add the cold butter and mix until the ingredients appear crumbly.

4) Turn out onto well floured surface and roll out into 3/4 inch thickness

5) Cut into rounds and lay on a lined cookie sheet. continue to roll out dough and cutting. try not to warm the dough too much with your hand or over kneading. If the dough is not cool to the touch, place in the fridge for 15 minutes before cutting out.
