Brown Butter, Goat Cheese, and Chive Drop Biscuits


Brown Butter, Goat Cheese, and Chive Drop Biscuits
Makes 8 biscuits

4 tbsp unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp granulated sugar
3.5-4 oz goat cheese log, chilled and cubed
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
2 tbsp chives, thinly sliced
fleur de sel, for sprinkling (optional)

Place butter in saucepan on medium-high heat to melt. Continue to melt until butter begins to bubble and turn brown. Scrape melted butter (and the brown bits at the bottom of the saucepan) into a bowl and refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or overnight. When the brown butter is solid once more, slice into ½-inch cubes and set aside. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Add brown butter cubes and goat cheese. Use your hands to rub the butter and goat cheese into the dry ingredients until combined (the mixture should be mostly moist crumbles). Add buttermilk and chives and stir until dough forms. Use a ¼ cup measure to scoop each biscuit onto baking sheet. Sprinkle with fleur de sel (optional) and place in oven. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown with moist crumbles. Biscuits are best straight out of the oven, but can be eaten within 24 hours (just warm in a low oven and serve).

    There are so many wonderful things to say about these biscuits. Their flavor and texture melt in your mouth and you will find yourself eating one after another. These are the best biscuits I have ever had! The little dash of salt when they are done brings these biscuits to a whole new level. BBE! Best Biscuits Ever.
