Servings 6 Biscuits


  • Baking Tray
  • Oven


  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Smoked Mozzarella or White Cheddar
  • 1/2 Bunch Green Onions
  • 1/4 Tbsp Black Pepper Ground
  • 1/3 Cup Butter Cold and Cubed
  • 1 Cup Buttermilk Cold


  • In a large bowl, mix together all of your dry ingredients. This includes the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, cheese, scallions, and black pepper. Use a whisk to evenly mix the ingredients.
  • Next, rub in the cold and cubed butter (you may also take the cold butter and use it on a cheese grater to make it easier on mixing). Work the flour into the butter until there is no flour left uncoated. The consistency and feel of it should be completely changed into small and fluffy pellets of dough. Be careful not to overmix the dough. You want pea-sized chunks throughout your dough base.

  • Following this, add the buttermilk and gently fold it with your hand. Fold the biscuit dough over itself until it has just combined. You might not need all of the buttermilk, so add and mix most of it. The dough should be wet enough to combine without leaving anything dry on the bottom of the bowl.

  • Scoop the dough with an ice cream scoop into 4 oz uniform scoops.

  • Gently place these on a greased baking tray. Spray the tops with butter and chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. We want the butter within the biscuit dough to chill down before going in that hot oven!
    The best biscuit dough is spread out evenly to ensure even baking!
  • Bake these biscuits at 375 degrees F for 22-24 minutes (depending on your oven). They will be ready when you gently press into them and the biscuit springs back to shape. When they come out of the oven, sprinkle with salt and finish with honey.
