Servings 9 people


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup Garlic & Herb Butter Spread, plus 2 tablespoons melted Garlic & Herb Butter Spread
  • 1/3 cup cubed Parmesan cheese (1/4 inch)
  • 1/3 cup cubed Gruyère cheese (1/4 inch)
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives
  • 1 cup cold buttermilk
  • Flaky salt and freshly cracked black pepper to top

To Serve

  • soft scrambled eggs
  • sliced prosciutto
  • extra Garlic & Herb Butter Spread


  • Preheat oven to 450˚F.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and baking soda and whisk to combine. Using a fork or a pastry cutter, cut the cold Garlic & Herb Butter Spread into the flour mixture until crumbly. Make a well in the center, place cheese and chives in the well and pour buttermilk over. Carefully and slowly stir until it comes together and makes dough
  • Turn the dough out onto lightly floured surface and, with floured hands, give it a quick knead 3-4 times to bring it together. Pat the dough into an 8×8 square, about 1 inch thick, and cut into 9 square biscuits
  • Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silpat, brush with melted butter spread, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in a hot oven until puffed up and golden brown, around 15-18 minutes
