Mini Green Onion Biscuits

Tonight's dinner was so tasty!  Grilled steaks, baby red potatoes roasted in foil on the grill (extra crispy- the way I love them), salad, and these new biscuits.  They smelled awesome while I made them, and made me think of sour cream and onion potato chips.  Now I really want to try them with sour cream...

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped green onions
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup cold whipped cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and green onions.  Using your hands or a pastry blender, add the butter and mix until coarse crumbles form.  Your hands really are the best bet for this step, even if it's messy.
  3. Add the cream cheese in dollops.  Using your hands or a pastry blender, again mix until larger crumbles form.  Stir in the buttermilk until just combined- do not over mix.
  4. Sprinkle work surface with flour, turn out dough, and sprinkle top of dough with flour.  Pat out dough until 1 inch thick.  Coat a small biscuit cutter or the clean top of a spice container (I used the lid of my onion salt- similar flavor I figured!) in flour, and cut the dough into small 1" rounds.  Re-use scraps, being careful not to over work the dough, and continue until all biscuits are cut out.
  5. Place biscuits on nonstick baking sheets, about 1" apart, and bake 6-8 minutes, until slightly golden.  Best served warm!
