Instructions

  1. Step
    Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. Step
    Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, add flour, baking powder, salt and sugar to the mixer bowl and turn on low to combine all dry ingredients.
  3. Step
    Add in chilled butter and turn speed up to medium. Allow the paddle to break up the butter until it resembles coarse crumbles. Add in cheddar cheese and mix through.
  4. Step
    Turn mixer down to low and add buttermilk and chives. Mix until the dough is soft, moist and pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  5. Step
    Transfer dough to lightly-floured surface and begin to carefully knead dough. Using a rolling pin, flatten dough to a 1/2-inch thickness and cut biscuits into desired shapes.
  6. Step
    Place biscuits on a cookie sheet and put into the fridge or freezer for 5 minutes, then place in preheated oven.
  7. Step
    I use a stand mixer, but you can make biscuits by hand. Use your hands or forks to break up the butter until it resembles coarse crumbles.
