Cheddar and Chive Biscuits

Cheddar and Chive Biscuits ~ The fresh taste of Chives and rich Cheddar make these savory biscuits {crackers} 100% better than any store-bought kind and is perfect to serve with dips and cheese balls as an appetizer {Quick and Easy recipe} #SavorySnacks

It's that time of the year ! Parties, family gatherings, watching the big game - you name it and you will find a reason to serve these scrumptious Cheddar and Chive Biscuits .

I suppose it could be called crackers, but to me a cracker is much thinner, whereas these Biscuits rise to just a little higher than which it was rolled out to. It is definitely much tastier than store-bought crackers or biscuits and I love the Chives and the rich Cheddar flavor in these Biscuits.

With my arms being just about useless, it also helps that this recipe does not require any heavy kneading or rolling out. The kneading is minimal and rolling out, a breeze.

I made tiny Biscuits this time round, but you can make them bigger and seeing as the dough does not spread, you can place them fairly close to one another. I use one baking sheet per one batch, and two baking sheets when I bake a double batch, which is much better and convenient as both baking sheets fits into the oven on the center rack.

Imagine the smell of these Cheddar and Chive Biscuits baking ! Absolutely wonderful and as soon as my family catches even a whiff of the smell, they're in the kitchen - dogs included ;-) Therefore, for me, it is better to bake a double batch as it seems we have an appetizer to an appetizer, if you know what I mean... half eaten warm straight off the baking sheet and half when the Biscuits are cooled and served as it was meant to.

*I am including a photo of the Black Pepper Sauce I use, as I am not sure whether these are available world wide, and wanted to give you a look at the packet in case you know of something similar to use, or at least give you an idea. I use the Powder as is, dry from the packet - not mixed with a cup of Boiling Water as stated on the pack.*

  2. These sound great. One thing I have an issue with is putting some spreads on store-bought crackers, which tend to be very thin and which crack and crumble too easily. I could see piling up a bit more spread on these.

  3. Cheese and chive are the perfect combination. Even better than you can eat as biscuits, or you coudl use as crackers with a scrumptious dip.
