Total time: 45 minutes | Makes 12 biscuits
Note: Adapted from Durty Nelly's. Fish base can be found at seafood markets and many well-stocked grocery stores.
  • 3 1/2 cups (15 ounces) flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Salt
  • 1 cup softened margarine
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion, green parts only
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk

Step 1Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and a pinch of salt together. Add the margarine and mix together by hand until mixture is slightly dry and crumbly, and the margarine is reduced to pea-sized crumbs. Mix in the cheddar cheese and green onions. Add the buttermilk and knead. Turn the mixture out onto a floured cutting board or work surface and knead a few more times. Roll the dough to about an inch thick and form into a rectangle. Cut into 12 equal squares. Place on lined baking sheet, slightly spaced apart.

Step 3Bake until the top appears golden brown, cracked and firm, 10 to 12 minutes.
