Baby Butterball Chive Biscuits

While I was baking these biscuits today I could hear my husband teaching our daughters the rules of football. You see, my husband loves football, but unfortunately he married a girl that doesn't care for it much. I encourage him to watch and will even make him "game" food, but unfortunately the sound of the crowd cheering in the background always puts me to sleep. He realized early in our marriage that football wouldn't be something we would share and since it takes many, many hours each weekend to watch a game he, yes he, told me he would like to fold laundry during the games so he isn’t sitting on the couch for hours “getting nothing done.” So, every Saturday afternoon you will find me washing huge mounds of laundry and piling them up in the living room for him to fold during his Sunday game. Did I get a great guy or what?

Recently our daughters have shown an interest in watching football and Pete is thrilled. They are still trying to learn the rules, so there is lots of pausing to answer questions. Sometimes I can hear a bit of frustration in his voice (b/c he keeps getting interrupted over and over) but he told me the other day he looks at it as investing, and hopefully he will get one of the girls in our family to be his football buddy. I hope for his sake he does.

While the biscuits were coming out of the oven, Pete and the girls walked through the kitchen every once in a while popped a few warm biscuits in their mouth. There aren't many whole wheat recipes you can make in less than 30 minutes. When I made these the other night, I am embarrassed to say that we ate the entire two pans! (In case you're wondering, that is about 50 biscuits. And yes, I was working hard in the gym the next morning!) It's hard to stop eating them since they are so little and can easily be popped in your mouth. The biscuits are buttery, salty, and flaky with yummy bits of chives. They go perfectly with soup, in fact, I served them with the spicy black bean soup the other night. Come to think of it, they could make a great game food too, served overflowing in a bowl on the coffee table. A great alternative to chips and dip I’d say.

Baby Butterball Chive Biscuits
Yields 40-50 biscuits

2 1/4 cups freshly milled hard wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
2 sticks butter, cut into tablespoons
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup chives, minced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In the bowl of a food processor pulse together flour, baking powder and sea salt to combine. Add butter and pulse for 10 one second pulses. Pour mixture into large bowl and add sour cream and chives. With the back of a spatula, firmly fold the dough until it comes together and is slightly tacky.

Place dough on a floured surface and roll out until 3/4" thick. Use a small biscuit cutter to cut biscuits and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes.

Tip: If you don’t want the mess of rolling out the dough on the counter you can use a small 1” ice cream scoop to scoop the dough right out of the bowl.

biscuits are one of my favorite things in the world and these look extraordinary. I unfortunately discovered a wheat allergy a couple of years ago so I've not figured out how to eat stuff like this again and I was never much of a baker...

these look sooo good and you've made me miss wheat general I've gotten used to the problem...

I'm so naive about baking...are you familiar enough with other flours to suggest something else?

I wish I had another option to give you for these biscuits. I'm sure you are familiar with "Gluten-Free Girl"...if you look at some of her recipes she might have a few flours that she mixes in place of white flour. I think I'll write her and ask b/c I've been eating gluten-free about 95% of the time and would like to know how to convert.

I'll let you know if I find something out!
