Cheesy Scallion Beer Bread Biscuits

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 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.
