Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter cold and cut into small cubes
  • 1 ½ cups freshly shredded parmesan divided
  • ¼ cup minced chives divided
  • 1 cup buttermilk cold


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a 9x13” baking pan by lining it with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Using a pastry cutter (or your hands, but work fast!), blend in the butter to the flour mixture.
  4. Stir in 1 cup of the fresh parmesan, and all the chives except 1 tablespoon.
  5. Pour in the buttermilk, and stir together just until combined.
  6. Sprinkle the countertop with flour, and place the dough on the flour. Sprinkle some flour on the top of the dough, then gently press it down until you have a sheet about 1” thick.
  7. Fold the dough over itself in half, then in half again. Press down again until you have a 1” thick sheet. This is what will give you thick, flakey layers!
  8. Gently cut out your biscuit shapes using a cookie cutter, small cup, or jar lid. Place the biscuits about 1” apart in the prepared baking pan. Top with extra parmesan and chives.
  9. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
