Biscuits have long been a favorite in our house. The flaky, delicate texture is really hard to resist. Now, take a traditional biscuit and combine it with some green onions and grated Gruyere...and you have a heavenly little combo!
Start by combining the dry ingredients.
Mix your egg and milk and set aside.
Add chilled butter to flour mixture. Pulse just to break it up slightly.
Add milk mixture and pulse quickly to combine. You don't want to break up the butter into too small of pieces.
Add in Gruyere and green onions. Pulse quickly, only to combine.
Drop onto baking sheet. If you prefer a more shaped biscuit, flour your surface, roll and cut the biscuits. I wanted the rustic look, so I went for drop biscuits.
I did press them down slightly, it helps to keep even baking.
Bake until they are golden brown and perfect. Honestly, I wish you could smell these! Our house smelled a bit like heaven when these came out.
I think they are best served warm, but I'll take them anyway we can!
Look at that cheese pull! Heart eyes, heart eyes...
Now, sit back and enjoy, you deserve it!
Gruyere and green onion biscuits.
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour if you prefer white or gluten free, use those.
- ¾ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 4 ounces cold butter, cut in ½ inch chunks
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 cup gruyere, grated
- ½ cup green onions, minced
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. If you have the convection option, you should use it. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Now, with a biscuit and scone recipes, you want everything to stay chilled. You want to keep the chunks of butter until you get it in the hot oven. This is what will give you the flaky layers. In a food processor, combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Pulse until combined.Add butter to flour mixture. Pulse for just a second or 2. Next, combine milk and egg. Add milk mixture to flour mixture. Again, pulse just for a second. You don't want to break up the butter too much. Last step is adding the grated cheese and green onions. Pulse them lightly until all is combined. Divide into 5 medium biscuits or 4 larger ones and place on baking sheet.Place immediately in oven. Bake until the biscuits are risen, fluffy and golden brown. I think they are best served warm, but I will take them even cool. Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
