  • 2 cups White Lily Enriched Bleached Self Rising Flour
  • 8 tablespoons 1 stick cold, unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 1/3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives finely diced + more to sprinkle on top
  • 1 cup cold buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter


  • Preheat an oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, place the flour inside and quickly add the cold butter. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut and mix the flour and butter together until small, coarse crumbs form. Gently stir in the cheese and chives.
  • Make a well in the middle of the flour and cheddar cheese mixture and pour in the buttermilk and, using a rubber spatula, gently stir together until just incorporated. Do not over mix. Your dough will be very wet and sticky.
  • Scoop out the biscuit dough using spoons or a cookie scoop, and place onto your lined baking sheet, placing them 1 to 2 inches apart. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the melted butter and sprinkle on a little fresh diced chives if desired.
  • Bake, rotating the pan from front to back halfway through baking, until the biscuits are golden brown, for about 20 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
