We can all agree on one thing, biscuits are a win win for just about every meal. You can pack them with whatever you please, tailor them to the season, pair them with anything or just enjoy solo with some butter. Believe it or not, biscuits are one of the easiest concepts to throw together. It’s a handful of ingredients, the less touching of the dough the better, just create layers and bake!
If you have a good biscuit cutter and can create layers, you’re going to be good at making biscuits!

Line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper; set aside.
In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and black pepper; whisk well to combine.
Add the vegan butter to the flour and using your fingertips rub the butter into the mix, stopping when the mixture is a coarse meal.
Stir in the chives and vegan cheddar.
Gradually add the almond milk and stir with a fork just until a messy (sticky) ball is formed. You may not use all the milk.
Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface and knead (with very floured hands) until the dough has been worked into a ball; about 6-7 times should do it. Don’t overwork the dough as they won’t rise well. Less kneading is better.
Pat the ball down into a 1″ thick round, then use a biscuit cutter to cut out as many rounds as possible, re-rolling the scraps as needed. If you’re like me and prefer layers, I like to fold the dough a few times, then cut out the biscuits to create larger ones with more layers.
Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet bottom side up as it should be more flat. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
