Homemade Chive Biscuits

Are you a biscuits in the morning or the evening kind of person? Personally, I like them doused with some gravy for a savory brunch dish, maybe with a tall glass of orange juice on the side. But the beauty of these chive biscuits is that they’re flexible enough to have with any meal you’d like, yet light and fluffy enough to not overpower any other items served up on your plate.

Ina Garten is one of my personal heroes. She’s uber-classy, she’s wickedly talented, and she comes up with some of the best renditions of classic, down-home recipes that I want to make over and over again. She’s who I got this tried-and-true Homemade Chive Biscuits recipe from, so it’s no wonder they’re such a knockout. Even as someone with kids who “don’t like green stuff” in a lot of their food, I’ve won them over with these buttery, mouth-watering biscuits. Green stuff never stood a chance, thanks to sweet Ina.

Why don’t my biscuits rise?

Greasy, heavy biscuits that refuse to rise could be a sign that your butter wasn’t cold enough — you want to start by making your biscuit dough with hard, cold butter chopped into smaller pieces. It could also mean your oven wasn’t hot enough when you baked them. These aren’t a low and slow kind of pastry. You’ll need about 20 minutes of bake time in a 400 degree F. oven for the best results.

Why are my biscuits dry?

Dry biscuits often mean your problem is, again, with the butter. The point of using cold butter is that it bakes and melts into little pockets of the biscuits, creating flaky, moist layers. Don’t let your butter warm to room temperature before making the dough — just get it straight out of the fridge, chop it up, and start mixing up your ingredients.

How do you know when biscuits are done?

When you bake biscuits at 400 degrees F., they’ll need to be in the oven for about 20 to 22 minutes, depending on your oven. Check them around the 20-minute mark — if they’re golden-brown on top, have a crack or two down the top, and feel firm in the middle, they’re done!

How do you keep homemade biscuits fresh?

After they’ve cooled completely, wrap the biscuits in plastic wrap or aluminum foil to lock in their moisture before storing them in a sealable bag or airtight container. They’ll last for up to 3 days stored this way at room temperature.
