Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir Cheddar cheese and chives into flour mixture; gradually stir in milk to form a soft dough.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and with floured hands, knead until smooth, about 15 times. Roll dough out to a 1-inch thickness with a floured rolling pin. Cut biscuits with a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter; place onto an ungreased baking sheet. Press dough trimmings together, roll out again, and cut remaining dough into rounds.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

This recipe is spot on! Just like my mom (from Nova Scotia) makes! I made this recipe twice, using lard as in the instructions, and the second time with butter as a replacement for the lard. You can lower the lard/butter amount to 1/4 cup if you want to save a few calories. You can also be a bit more generous with the shredded cheese, if you like. Read More

If you want something quick and extremely easy on a cold morning this is the ticket. Very quick to make with no baking experience required. Appearance taste and texture were very good. One suggestion do not attempt this recipe unless you are willing to make them often! Everyone from my wife to my 6 year old daughter loved them. Thank You Allie K:) Read More

It was very good and easy and went well with a nice cup of tea. Next time though I think I'll add more cheese. But that's just because I love cheese Read More

So simple and good! I wanted to use chives but didn't have any so I used about 1/2 teas onion powder with the flour. I chose to use butter. It was just me and my immediate family so I dropped them straight from the bowl on a cookie sheet and baked as directed. They came out so tender and toasty on the bottoms. Thank you! Read More

My husband had a fancy for cheese biscuits and made these tonight. He made them smaller to go with dinner and I must say I was very impressed. Very scrumptious! I popped the remaining biscuits in the freezer. He can make these anytime he likes. Thank you hubby.. Very nice!! Read More
