Potato Chive Biscuits

Biscuits make a nice addition to a variety of meals. Try these as a topping for my Chicken Pot Pie or as a side with chicken or chili. Of course they’re great on their own as well and make for a tasty snack. Use one-inch cutters to make snack-sized biscuits for small children and babies (and yes, babies will eat them!).

Number of Servings



  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, chilled
  • 1 cup cooked potatoes, mashed
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup chives, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Cut the butter in small pieces, and, using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour mixture until there are no lumps.
  4. In another bowl combine the mashed potatoes, buttermilk and chives.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat the dough out until it is ½ inch thick.
  7. Cut the biscuits with a round cookie cutter or a glass dipped in flour and arrange on a cookie sheet. Gather up scraps and repeat until all the dough is used. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
