How to make it

These Cheese and Spring Onion Biscuits are American style ‘biscuits’, a bit more like a scone. Ideal if you’re making a thanksgiving dinner!

  • Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan)
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, black pepper, and salt
  • Using your fingers, work cold butter into flour mixture until butter is in small, flattened pieces and mixture is crumbly
  • Stir in the chopped spring onions
  • Add half of the cheese
  • Add 3/4s of the buttermilk, and stir just until dough comes together
  • Adding the rest of the buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary
  • You’re looking for a dough that is neither sticky nor crumbly
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface, and knead a few times to bring dough together
  • Grease a 9 inch cake tin
  • Sprinkle some of the remaining cheddar into the tin
  • Place the dough into the tin, pushing up to the sides
  • Pre-cut the dough into 8 triangles
  • Brush tops with melted butter
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top
  • Bake these Cheese and Spring Onion biscuits until golden brown, approx. 15 minutes.
