Green Onion Biscuits

prepared by and photo by Emily Doscher

Flaky yet dense and moist.  Green onion pack the biscuits with flavor leaving out any of that “oniony” aftertaste.

Size: makes 16

3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 1/3 cups chilled whipping cream
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced green onions
2 tbsp (1/4 stick) butter, melted


Preheat oven to 425F.  Mix flour, baking powder, salt and pepper in large bowl.  Mix cream and green onions in medium bowl.  Add cream mixture to dry ingredients.  Stir until moist clumps form.
Transfer dough to floured work surface.  Knead just until dough holds together, about 8 turns.  Shape into 8″ square.  Cut out sixteen 2″ square biscuits.  Transfer biscuits to large baking sheet, spacing 1 1/2″ apart.  Brush top of biscuits with melted butter.
Bake biscuits until golden and cooked through, about 18 minutes.  Serve warm. (Can be made 8 hours ahead.  Cool.  Wrap in foil.  Store at room temperature.  Rewarm wrapped biscuits in 350F oven until heated through, about 8 minutes.)
