Moldy Biscuits


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • Green food coloring
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Sauté the scallions in 3 tablespoons butter until they are soft. Set the scallions aside and let cool.
  3. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt into a large mixing bowl. Cut the 1/2 cup butter into small pieces and cut it into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. In a small bowl mix together the 3/4 cup buttermilk and the green food coloring, until it is a very dark shade of green. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, and add the scallions and the green buttermilk. Mix until a very sticky dough just holds together. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 20 times. Pat out until 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a 2-inch cutter. Place biscuits on a baking sheet about 3 inches apart.
  5. Mix the melted butter and buttermilk and brush on the biscuits.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
