Easy peezy and SO delicous, regular biscuits will be a thing of the past. No need to roll out and cookie cutter the dough to make these. To whip these up, all you have to do is roll up some dough into a ball in your hands and smoosh it onto a baking tray. Bake for just 15 minutes and they come out golden brown with ooey gooey blue cheese bubbling on the surface.
So. good. I can’t play it cool. Remember that time I ate three scones immediately after baking and I don’t even like scones? Well I love biscuits sooooo…I ate a few more than three of these Blue Cheese Chive Biscuits right off the bat, steaming and everything. Totally worth it. Bust these puppies out at dinner instead of regular buttermilk biscuits and you’ll never go back. I made these last Thanksgiving and they were the hit of the feast! And I dry brined my turkey so that’s saying something.
