Yesterday I had four friends come to my condo for a Soup Swap lunch. What's a Soup Swap? Well, you'll have to wait till Wednesday or Friday to find out. I decided to keep things simple and make two soups, a salad, and "bread." When thinking about the menu, I was considering making focaccia, bread, or maybe savory scones. In the end, however, I ended up making Cheddar Chive Biscuits that I very slightly changed up from an AMAZING recipe from Pinch My Salt.
Cheddar Chive Biscuits Recipe From Pinch My Salt
This recipe could not have been easier. It'd probably take you longer to go to your local bakery to pick up a box of biscuits than to make them yourself.
You start by whisking together flour, baking soda, baking powder and dry mustard.
Don't worry: there is no need for salt because you will be adding plenty of cheese in a minute.
Speaking of cheese, I used shredded sharp cheddar.
For the herbs, I used fresh chives, but you can use whichever herbs you want and even dry ones.
These biscuits have no eggs. Instead, they have a bit of butter, milk and one of my favorite ingredients ever: sour cream!
I was a bit worried that my dough looked on a dry side, but it all came together beautifully!
The only change I made from the original recipe was to brush the biscuits with a bit of milk and sprinkle them with flaky salt before putting them into the oven.
How gorgeous are these Cheddar Chive Biscuits?? They rose beautifully and were flaky and tender inside. They went great with the soup and salad and could most likely be frozen...I can't verify that because we at them all ;)
