Green Onion Drop Biscuits

Tamara Stimpson

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

2 tsp granulated sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking soda

6 tbsp cold butter

1 egg

3/4 cup buttermilk

 

  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, onions, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs (I usually use my fingers instead of a knife!)
  • Combine egg and buttermilk; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened.
  • Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 2" apart onto a greased baking sheet (or line it with parchment paper or use a non-stick sheet).
  • Bake at 400F for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve warm alongside a soup or chili or even a salad!
