- 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.
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!
