Goat Cheese and Chive Biscuits-Guest Post with Eat Your Heart Out

You may remember Stephie, from Eat Your Heart Out, has guest posted on here before, and I have also posted on her site. So-of couuurse-my girl had my back to help out during this busy busy time! Stephie is the freaking bestest everyone, you should already know this, but I'm saying it again. She's brilliant and talented and fun and her mom is like the cutest food blog momma ever (hi Mrs. Swope!) and when I finally visit Chicago, I sort of just assume I'll stay with her. I should probably ask first, though, huh?

...Hey Stephie! it cool if I stay with you??

...and eat all your food?
Goat Cheese and Chive Biscuits
Hellooooo, friends! So glad to be chatting with you again here on Kayle’s corner of the internet. It’s always a pleasure to help out a friend and share a delicious recipe.

Let’s talk about this recipe, shall we? These biscuits. Hooooo-boy. Let’s not talk about how I inhaled 3 of them straight from the oven, ok? That would just be embarrassing.

I have an obsession with goat cheese lately. It’s getting pretty serious. These days, any time Boyfriend comes home and wonders what new thing I’m up to in the kitchen, there is probably goat cheese involved. I am currently beyond thrilled any time I have a chance to combine it with strawberries – take a gander at this Strawberry and Goat Cheese Flatbread or my Strawberry and Goat Cheese Freekeh Salad, for example – but there is something about combining that tangy goat cheese with chives that also makes my soul sing.

It only seemed right to but the two into a biscuit. I mean…it didn’t seem kind to deprive the world of such a treat.

I did two things to make these biscuits even more spectacular. First, I used a whole wheat pastry flour to make them. This means that they are extra nutty and extra good for you. Go ahead and eat 4.

(Don’t take my nutrition advice. Ever. But the whole wheat flour is better for you than all-purpose, that is a true thing.)

Second, I made them into drop biscuits. No kneading, rolling, cutting, or making a generally large mess. Mix, drop, bake. They are super easy, stay nice and tender, and are generally pretty quick to pull together. Make these for a brunch or to go alongside your favorite soup – or just because you need a biscuit. You can’t go wrong.

Goat Cheese and Chive Biscuits

Goat Cheese and Chive Biscuits
Makes about 9 biscuits.
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or white whole wheat flour)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
  • 1 ½ ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • Heaping tablespoon minced chives
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Preheat oven to 425F degrees. 
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut butter into dry ingredients with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles a coarse meal with some pea-sized pieces of butter.  Gently mix in the goat cheese and chives, then stir in the milk until just barely combined. 
  • Dollop heaping spoonfuls of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown. 
*smooches* Thanks Stephie! These biscuits look SOOOO GOOD!'re making these when I stay with you, right?
