Oh mercy me…it’s like going back in time. Buttermilk biscuits like grandma made. But not quite, because I am adding freshly grated Parmesan, garden fresh chives and toasted pine nuts to make grandma’s recipe a bit more interesting!
These Easy Buttermilk Parmesan Chive Biscuits are going to be a new favorite…you can thank me now, or later. There’s a comment section below specifically for that purpose;)

To make these amazing biscuits I use a good old fashioned handmade dough (it takes minutes I swear!) Then I cut into circles using the top of a mason jar or cookie cutter…
…place on a parchment covered cookie sheet…
…and bake to golden perfection!
Oh my heavens…serve warm and slather with butter!
Oh, But I Am Not Done Yet…I Have a Grain Free Version!
And look how amazing they are! My gluten/grain free friends you can thank me later, or now. There’s a comment section below specifically for that purpose:)
Seriously, you would never guess these are grain free! I use an amazing flour made from the yuca root. It’s called Otto’s Cassava Flour (affiliate link) and it tastes, behaves and bakes the most like all purpose flour of any gluten/grain free flour I have used.
Traditional and Grain Free Parmesan Chive Buttermilk Biscuits
Tips and what you will need: if you are making the grain free version of this recipe you will need Otto’s Cassava Flour. You will also need parchment paper and a cookie sheet. (affiliate links)
- 2 cups all purpose flour grain/gluten free friends use cassava flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoons sea salt
- 4 Tablespoons cold butter cut into 1" pieces
- 1 1/2 cups freshly grated parmesan cheese divided
- 1/4 cup chopped chives
- 1 cup cultured buttermilk for grain free use 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1/4 cup raw pine nuts
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Set oven rack in center position.
Place parchment paper on cookie sheet and set aside.
Measure flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl.
Add cut butter. Use your fingertips to pinch butter into dry ingredients until it looks like course meal.
Add 1 cup fresh parmesan (reserving half a cup fro later) and chives, mix well with hands.
Make a well in the center and pour buttermilk into well. Stir and then use hands to mix until dough is formed. Dough will be very sticky (grain free won't be as sticky)
Form into a ball.
Sprinkle counter with flour and set dough on counter. Use hands to form into a 1" thick flat round disk.
Cut into circles. I use the top of a mason jar but you can use a round cookie cutter.
Fold leftover dough and form into a 1" thick flat round disk again. Cut dough. Repeat till all dough is gone.
Place dough onto cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Very quickly sprinkle biscuits with remaining cheese and sprinkle with pine nuts. Bake 3-5 more minutes. Cheese should melt and pine nuts should become golden.
Serve warm with butter from grass fed cows!

We make something similar to this which are the cheddar biscuits from Red Lobster and they are amazing. Yours look delicious too!

Yum, yum, yum! I love homemade biscuits, although I usually just drop them on the sheet instead of rolling and cutting them out. Your chives + parmesan addition sounds amazing!
Thanks Elaina. You could ‘drop’ these too if you wanted!
I love parmesan. These biscuits look wonderfully satisfying.
I love homemade fluffy biscuits!
They look so flakey and beautiful! LOOOVE that egg on top! That is how I like my biscuits too!
These buttermilk biscuits remind me of my stay in Atlanta a long time ago. They have a very southern flair and I just love this recipe.
These look so good, I would love one, with that runny egg on top, for breakfast this morning!
