Scallion Cheesy Beer Bread Biscuits

What was the first thing you ever baked?

It’s fun to think about because you prob don’t think about it all that often. The first thing I ever baked was probably a batch of alfajores with my mom and Tia Emilia. Or it might’ve been a Duncan Hines cake from a box with my mom. I can’t remember but it was definitely one of those!

The third thing I ever baked was probably beer bread because a friend of mine told me that it was something I couldn’t possibly mess up and she was right. It is one of those things that requires a handful of ingredients and absolutely no kitchen skills at all.

These are beer bread but in biscuit form! I applied biscuit-technique to beer bread so instead of adding melted butter, which beer bread usually calls for, we’re using cold butter all grated up.

And then I added a ton of scallions and finely grated cheddar cheese. They’re flaky and beer-like (in a good way!) and the perfect thing to dip into big bowl of soup.

The soup pictured is the chorizo-spiced soup from The Year of Cozy and it’s still one of my favorite soups ever because it’s spicy and flavorful and light.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Serving Size: 6 biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, grated
  • 3 ounces finely grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pilsner beer, bubbles subsided


  • In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking powder and salt; whisk all of the ingredients together. Using a box grater, grate the butter atop. Mix the butter throughout the flour, breaking it up into pea-sized bits. Add the cheddar and scallions and toss until it’s thoroughly distributed throughout the flour/butter mixture.
  • Create a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour the beer in and mix until combined. Knead the biscuit dough a few times in the bowl and then pour it out onto a clean kitchen surface. Bring the dough together into a 1-inch thick square. Using a knife, cut out 6 rectangular shaped biscuits. Transfer the biscuits to the baking sheet and transfer to the freezer to chill for 15 to 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until medium golden brown on top. Serve with your favorite soup.

    I know for a fact, that my first bake was a traditional, Danish Christmas cookie called Pebernødder (peppernuts, even though there are neither nuts nor pepper in them). I baked them with my sister every year, and the recipe will definitely be on my blog in a week or two;-)
    Your bread and soup looks delicious!

    my first ever bake was Chocolate chip cookies! almost broke the hand mixer with chocolate, since I didn’t read the STIR in the chocolate chips part correctly haha These biscuits look great and so easy to throw together.
