This Callie’s Cheese & Chive Bicuits Copycat Recipe is for you if you love baking, love Callie’s Biscuits, or love entertaining. These biscuits are outstanding!!!
This Callie’s Cheese & Chive Biscuits copycat recipe is a DIY version of my favorite biscuits~made in Charleston, S.C., and shipped all over the world.
To be clear, I prefer the real thing. I love the convenience of buying Callie’s Biscuits and just keeping a box or two on hand. The Fresh Market where I shop carries these, so I seldom make them at home. It is too easy to keep the real deal in my freezer:-)
But for those of you who might not live near a store that sells Callie’s Biscuits, this copycat version is worth a try. They really are yummy, and if you enjoy baking, they aren’t a difficult recipe.
I made these last year and served them at a party alongside a platter of this brown sugar spiral sliced ham and an assortment of mustards, cheeses, and jellys. Bookmark this idea if you entertain. Having a “biscuit bar” is a great way to entertain. A lovely tray of biscuits served with assorted fillings~sausages, ham, pimento cheese, fried chicken tenders, etc~will be a wow factor that will also fill folks up:-)
You can read more about Callie’s biscuits at calliesbiscuits.com. You can also find more wonderful recipes in one of my fave cookbooks, Callie’s Biscuits and Southern Traditions. If you are a cookbook collector and afficionado like me, this is a must-have. I could curl up on the sofa and spend hours with my nose in this book:-)
For that hard to shop for client or out-of-town relative, you might consider a Callie’s gift box. A client of Zane’s sent us one last Christmas, and it was one of our favorite gifts. It was wonderful having a small stockpile of biscuits in the freezer to pull out any time we had guests or just wanted to treat ourselves at breakfast.
If you try this recipe, I’d love to hear your thoughts. If you are a Callie’s Biscuits fan, I’d love to hear your favorite way to enjoy them:-) As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!
