Savoury Buttermilk Tea Biscuits


1 1/2 cups (375 ml) all-purpose flour
2 tsp (10 ml) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) salt
1/4 tsp (1.25 ml) baking soda
1/4 cup (60 ml) cold butter cut into small squares
3/4 cup (175 ml) cold buttermilk
1/2 cup (125 ml) finely chopped asparagus spears
3 tbsp (45 ml) finely chopped chives


1. Heat oven to 450 F. In food processor bowl, combine flous, baking powder, salt and baking soda; pulse.

2. Add butter pieces and pulse 3-5 times until consistency of coarse meal.

3. Turn mixture into large bowl; add buttermilk, asparagus and chives; stir with fork until soft dough forms.

4. Turn onto floured surface, sprinkle lightly with flour. Knead gently 8-10 times until no longer sticky.

5. Gently press dough into 3/4 inch (2 cm) thickness; cut with 2-inch (5 cm) floured cutter. Place biscuits 2 inches (5 cm) apart on baking sheet.

6. Brush lightly with buttermilk. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Korey's Tips:

Use tea biscuits to make sandwiches: try ricotta cheese, pea shoots and fresh figs drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper.
No buttermilk? Add 1 tsp (5 ml) lemon juice or vinegar to milk instead.
