Recipe: BLT's Cheddar & Chive Biscuits

Dear readers,

TGIF!  In honor of the impending 3-day weekend, I wanted to send you off with the recipe for BLT Restaurant group's "Cheddar & Chive Biscuits," in the event that you're hosting a Fourth of July BBQ/soiree. 

I had the pleasure of sampling these savory, carb-filled delights at BLT Fish last night and, to my most pleasant surprise, a recipe card was attached!  Please enjoy!

BLT's Cheddar & Chive Biscuits

Ingredients  yields 8 biscuits

  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar
  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream

Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cayenne.  Cut the shortening and butter in to the flour mix.  Make sure NOT to overwork - leave butter and shortening in small pieces.  Toss in the chives and cheese.  Pour in cream, just until mixture comes together - make sure not to over-stir.  

Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 15-17 minutes.   Serve prompty with sea-salted maple butter (recipe below) - or, to enjoy at a later time, remove from hot cookie sheet and transfer to a wire rack/alternate cookie sheet to cool.  

Sea-salted maple butter spread (optional)

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • Sea salt

Add syrup to your ramekin of choice, and microwave for 12-seconds.  Position butter atop syrup, and lightly sprinkle with sea salt.  Serve alongside Cheddar & Chive Biscuits.

Until we eat again,

The Lunch Belle
