We got a large handful of chives in the CSA basket this week. Plus they are growing abundantly in our garden.
Looks like it’s time to bake chive biscuits. It’s easy. Just add 1/2 cup of chopped chives to any biscuit recipe. Or, use the recipe below. You can chop the chives with a cutting board and knife, but I find it easiest to hold the bunch in my hand and snip with scissors. Don’t forget to include the buds and flowers, but chop them fine as their taste can be quite strong.
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
4 T butter
1/2 cup chopped chives
2/3 cup milk
Combine the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter. Stir in the chives. Add the milk and stir briefly until the dough comes together. Knead lightly. Roll out and cut with a biscuit cutter or the rim of a drinking glass dipped in flour. Baked on a greased cookie sheet at 400 for 12-15 minutes. Makes approximately 10 biscuits.
