Sourdough Biscuits with Cheese and Chives

  • Author: Meghan Yager
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 8 biscuits 1x


Easy to make, deliciously flaky sourdough biscuits with cheese and chives are a great way to use up your sourdough starter.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped chives
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1 cup unfed sourdough starter, chilled


  1. Preheat oven to 425˚F. 
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, chives, and cheese.
  3. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. The mixture should have pea-sized lumps.
  4. Stir in sourdough starter, until most of the flour is incorporated. Use your hands to knead the mixture a few times in the bowl until it comes together.
  5. Turn out dough onto a clean, lightly floured work surface. Roll dough out until it is about 3/4 of an inch thick. Cut biscuits into 2 ½ to 3-inch rounds. 
  6. Reroll any scraps and cut out the remaining rounds.
  7. Place on an ungreased baking sheet spaced about 1 inch apart. 
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. 
  9. Cool on the pan for about 10 minutes before serving warm. Allow leftovers to cool completely on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.
