Cheddar Chive Biscuits

These easy biscuits are a meal all by themselves and are a unique way to use chives, which tend to be prolific all summer long.

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

¼ cup cold butter

1 cup cold milk

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup diced cheddar cheese

1/3 cup diced chives

Yield: 10 biscuits

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or cover it with parchment paper.

2. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together. Work in butter until mixture is crumbly.

3. Mix milk and lemon juice together, then add the mixture to the batter. Mix in cheese and chives until evenly distributed.

4. Loosely shape the dough into balls and drop them onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush lightly with heavy cream or melted butter, if desired. Bake for 17 minutes, or until golden on top.
