Cheddar Green Onion Biscuits

These buttermilk cheddar biscuits are reminiscent of Red Lobster's Cheddar bay biscuits.. yum. The best part? They require no stand mixer, no hand mixer. You mix them with your HANDS which means less dishes. Less dishes are always good in my book.

Word of the wise on this recipe, and any recipe calling for buttermilk. Don't buy buttermilk. Who can use an entire thing of buttermilk before it goes bad? This recipe only calls for 1/2 cup. The smallest container is 1/2 a pint, which leaves me with extra buttermilk leftover that I will never use! This 12 oz container of dry buttermilk costs about the same amount as a 1/2 pint of buttermilk but it can make up to 6 cups of buttermilk when combined with water. And the great part is you only have to make as much as you need. GENIUS! 
New favorite thing.

I am getting really excited for my new Williams Sonoma cookie sheets that I will be receiving for Christmas this year. As you can see I am in desperate need of them.

Feel free to double this recipe. It only makes 7. 
7 is not enough.

Cheddar Green Onion Biscuits
Yields: 7 large biscuits

1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp truvia
1/4 cup butter, cut into small cubes
4 oz cheddar cheese, grated
4 oz green onions, chopped (green and white part)
1/2 cup buttermilk (substitute 2 tbs dry buttermilk + 1/2 cup water)

Cutting board
Biscuit cutter or drinking glass
Cookie sheet


1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F 

2. Measure your flour, baking powder, baking soada, salt and sugar into a bowl and whisk to combine. Add your cubed butter, and mix in with your hands, breaking it down with your fingertips until it resembles large crumbs. Stir in your cheddar cheese and scallions. Make a well in the center of your biscuit dough, and pour in the buttermilk. Gently fold your flour mixture into the buttermilk until combined. Do not over-stir!

3. Flour a cookie sheet and pour the biscuit dough out onto it. Pat it down a bit and cut it into circles using a biscuit cutter if you have one, or use a regular drinking glass. Make sure to flour the rim of whatever you are using so the biscuits come off easily.
4. Place the biscuits on the a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
