  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 35m

12 biscuits

These chive-flecked cornmeal biscuits taste best made with extra-sharp cheddar, but any type of cheddar will work.

ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal, preferably stone-ground (see Shopping Tip)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 3-5 tablespoons low-fat milk

directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper in a food processor. Pulse a few times to mix. Add the cheese and butter and pulse again until the mixture looks pebbly with small oat-size lumps. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.

Add the sour cream, chives and honey (if using) and stir with a rubber spatula until almost combined. Add 3 tablespoons milk, stirring, just until the dough comes together; add more milk as needed until the dough holds together in a shaggy mass. Don’t overmix.

On a lightly floured surface, lightly pat the dough into a rectangle about 9 x 5 inches and just over 1/2 inch thick. Using a large chef’s knife, divide the dough evenly into 12 biscuits. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake the biscuits until lightly browned on top, 14-16 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
