Prep Time 15 minutes

Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 8 biscuits


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cut into pieces
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
  • Using a pastry cutter, or two knives, cut the butter into the flour until pea-sized chunks remain. I also like to run my hands quickly through the flour and break up the larger pieces with my fingers.
  • Add the green onions and cheddar cheese and toss to combine.
  • Pour in the buttermilk and mix until a crumbly dough is formed. Knead a few times with your hands to make sure everything is fully incorporated.
  • Transfer the dough to the parchment lined baking sheet. Press the dough into an 8-inch round disk, about 1-inch thick. Cut into 8 pieces and separate the pieces slightly.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to finish cooling completely.
  • Serve warm with butter.
