Our Easy Cheddar Biscuit Recipe comes together in just a few minutes. Tender, flakey simple to make biscuits that are perfect every time!
Sometimes the most basic recipes are our favorite. Old school biscuits with a touch of cheese and a sprinkle of green onions to make them go boom!
We served them with Chicken and Mushroom Soup for a total comfort meal on a cloudy Sunday night. Yes, we get clouds twice a year here in Palm Springs :).
Starting Squishy in the kitchen at an early age! Look at those hands, made to make biscuits! :).
What goes in these easy biscuits?
- baking powder
- buttermilk – you can also use a mixture of milk and vinegar (see recipe card for full instructions).
- green onions (optional)
PRO TIP: Working the flour and butter together is an important step. You want the butter to look like small pebbles. I find a Kitchaid mixer using the paddle wheel works great! Just toss in the butter and the flour and let it go!
What do I serve these Easy Cheddar Biscuits with?
Store any leftovers in a ziptop bag for up to 3 days at room temperature and then refridgerate for two.
