Here in DC, our neighborhood coffee shop is known for their baked cheddar chive biscuits. Like clockwork, every morning at 8:00 am they take trays of these out of the oven, and the smell alone isgood enough to make everyone in the neighborhood detour on their morning commute to grab one. Since moving back from California, I’ve tried all sorts of recipes to try to recreate them, but this is the first one I’ve found that even comes close.
These biscuits are flakey, buttery, soft, warm, and melt in your mouth, with the softest hint of onion from sweet green chives at the end of each bite. And, in my humble opinion, they also happen to be the perfect pairing for my very favorite Chicken Tortilla Soup , for a weekend brunch with the girls, or on the dinner table for Thanksgiving dinner. Trust me–you won’t be sorry. Everyone has to indulge every once in a while, right?
