Cheddar Cornmeal Biscuits with Chives

Cheesy, moist and delicious! These biscuits are certainly one of the best ones we have ever had.













Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free


1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup cornmeal
preferably stone-ground
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
½ cup cheddar cheese, reduced-fat
extra-sharp, shredded
2 tablespoons butter
cold, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
¾ cup sour cream, non-fat
¼ cup chives
fresh, finely chopped
1 tablespoon honey
5 tablespoons milk, low-fat



Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃) F.

Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper in a food processor.

Pulse a few times to mix.

Add cheese and butter and pulse again until the mixture looks pebbly with small oat-size lumps.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.

Add 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 by 5 inches and just over ½ 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 to 16 minutes.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
