Prep Time 10 minutes

Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 8


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese {shredded}
  • 2 tbsp chives {chopped}
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter {softened}


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.  Whisk or sift ingredients together.  Add shredded cheese and chopped chives to the dry ingredients and combine.  Pour in milk and stir into dry ingredients until you have a soft dough {you may need to add a tablespoon or two of extra milk}.  Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and shape them into small rounds {they will resemble biscuits}.  Place rounds on a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until bread is golden brown and cooked through.  Spread a small amount of butter onto each warm bread when you remove from the oven.  Serve warm or store in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.  Note:  They would also freeze well for up to 3 months.
