  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 3 tablespoons shortening + more for baking pan
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  • cups buttermilk + more for tops
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped chives + more for tops


  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
  • Cut shortening and very cold butter into dry ingredients of flour, salt and sugar.
  • Slowly pour milk into your dry ingredients. Mix lightly. Fold in grated Parmesan cheese and chives.
  • Pour dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently pat into a round disc about ½ inch thick. Cut dough with a sharp metal or glass cutter.
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of shortening to your baking pan and place into oven to melt, about 2 or 3 minutes. Once melted, remove from oven and tilt pan to make sure the bottom of the baking pan is well-coated.
  • Carefully place each biscuit into the hot grease on the baking pan. You’ll hear a bit of a sizzle as the bottom of the biscuit fries a bit in the hot grease.
  • Brush tops with buttermilk and then sprinkle with additional chives.
  • Place the baking pan into the oven and bake until the biscuits have risen and are lightly browned, about 10 – 12 minutes. Remove from oven and serve warm.

  1. love biscuits and def be trying these – tip: I never buy self-rising flour, to easy to make. for 1 cup just mix together 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1½ teaspoons baking powder and ¼ teaspoon salt. No sense buying another product and this way you know the baking powder is fresh.

  2. I love your blog! You’re photos are always amazing. I love this one, it is so vibrant and I love the contrast. I wish I had time to make everything you post :).
