Author Dorothy Kern


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cubed, plus 1 tablespoon for brushing
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Chives


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 10-inch cast-iron skillet or similar pan.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Add cubed cold butter. Use a pastry blender or fork, cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk, stirring with a fork to work the flour into the buttermilk just until moistened. Gently stir in cheddar cheese and chives.
  • Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and gently turn it two or three times until the dough comes together and is no longer sticky. If it's too dry, add a bit more buttermilk. Don’t over flour!
  • Roll or pat out to roughly 3/4” thickness. Use a 2 1/2” biscuit cutter or drinking glass to cut into rounds. Place in skillet.
  • Brush the tops with the melted butter. Bake for 17-20 minutes until they are puffy and golden.
  • Store biscuits in an airtight container for 2 days or freeze for up to one month.
