Cheddar Scallion Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe

    Table of Contents


    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
    • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1/4 cup fresh scallions, finely chopped
    • 1 cup buttermilk


    Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Prepare Dry Ingredients:

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

    Incorporate Cold Butter:

    Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients.

    Use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to quickly cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

    Add Cheddar and Scallions:

    Gently fold in the shredded cheddar cheese and finely chopped scallions, ensuring an even distribution throughout the dough.

    Create a Well:

    Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk.

    Mix the Dough:

    Using a spatula or wooden spoon, stir the ingredients until just combined.

    Be careful not to overmix; the dough should be slightly sticky.

    Form the Biscuits:

    Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.

    Pat it into a rectangle, about 1-inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or a floured glass, cut out biscuits and place them on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a small space between each.


    Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown on top.

    Serve Warm:

    Allow the biscuits to cool on a wire rack for a few minutes.

    Serve them warm with butter or your favorite spread.

    Enjoy these savory Cheddar Scallion Buttermilk Biscuits as a delightful accompaniment to soups, stews, or on their own!
