feta + chive biscuits

March 18, 2014



3 cups all-purpose flour

1 Tablespoons sugar

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper

3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes

1 egg, beaten

3 tablespoons cold water

3/4 cup whole milk

1/3 cup chopped chives

1 cup big crumbles of feta cheese

1 egg beaten for egg wash

paprika/salt/pepper for topping




Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease two baking sheets and set to side.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and black pepper.  Cut in butter  until mixture resembles is roughly blended.  In another smaller bowl, combine egg, milk, and water.  Beat lightly.  Add to flour mixture all at once, stirring enough to make a soft flaky dough.  Add the chives and feta and put mixture on clean surface to knead the dough together.  The mixture will come together in about 10 to 15 kneads.

Place dough in 1-inch thickness. Cut using a biscuit cutter or cut into 2×2-inch squares.  Reshape and roll dough to create more biscuits with excess scraps.    Place on prepared baking sheet, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sea salt, black pepper, and smoky paprika.   Bake for 12-14 minutes.  Serve warm.
