Buttery and flakey, Homemade Chive Biscuits melt in your mouth and have a just-perfect, subtle oniony taste that goes great with any meal of the day.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 cup cold butter, diced
- 3/4 cup milk (or half-and-half)
- 1/2 cup fresh chives, chopped
- 1 egg
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the butter, and mix on low speed until the butter is the size of peas.
- With the mixer on low, add the milk, and beat until just mixed.
- Add the chives, and mix until just combined.
- Dump the dough out on a well-floured board, and knead lightly into a rectangle 3/4-inch thick. Cut out rounds with a 2-and-a-1/2-inch round cutter, and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
- In a small bowl, beat one egg well, and add 1 tablespoon of water. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the egg wash.
- Bake for about 20 to 22 minutes, or until the tops are golden-brown and the insides are flaky, yet firm. Serve warm.
