  • 2.5 Cups Flour All purpose
  • 1 Tbsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Butter frozen
  • 1 Cup Cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh chives chopped
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 2 tsp Lemon juice
  • 1 large Egg beaten


  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  • Combine your milk and lemon juice and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Next Grate the frozen butter into the dry ingredients and then stir gently to combine.
  • Add the grated cheese and chives and stir to combine.
  • Add the beaten egg to the milk and then pour into the dry ingredients. Stir gently just until mixture comes together. The dough will feel a bit wet and sticky.
  • Turn out onto a generously floured counter top, or a large piece of parchment paper. Flour the top of the dough then press with your hands until dough is about 1/2 inch thick. Next fold the dough in half and press again to 1/2 inch thick. Repeat one more time.
  • With a biscuit or cookie cutter, cut dough into rounds pressing straight down. Place on parchment lined baking sheet leaving about 1/4 inch space between biscuits.
  • Place into oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until biscuits are golden.
  • Serve and enjoy!
