As dawn gently breaks, casting a golden hue over the kitchen, memories of simpler times flood my mind. There’s a comforting familiarity in the rhythmic whir of the oven preheating, a promise of warmth and nourishment awaiting within its depths. Today, I find myself drawn to the age-old tradition of biscuit-making, a ritual passed down through generations, each tender morsel a testament to love and nostalgia.

In a bowl, I gather the humble ingredients that will soon transform into something extraordinary. Flour, a blank canvas awaiting its masterpiece. Baking powder, the alchemist’s touch, ready to work its magic. Salt, a pinch of nostalgia, recalling the flavors of childhood. And then, there it is—the star of the show—everything bagel seasoning, a symphony of flavors in a single tablespoon.

As I sift and stir, memories of lazy Sunday mornings and bustling family gatherings mingle in the air. Biscuits, with their flaky layers and buttery embrace, have always been more than mere sustenance; they are a vessel for stories shared and moments cherished. And today, I embark on a culinary journey that pays homage to tradition while embracing the unexpected.

With deft hands, I cut cold butter into the flour mixture, each crumb a tiny tribute to the artisans of old. Slowly, methodically, I pour in the whole milk, watching as the dough comes together, a cohesive union of past and present. Optional, but irresistible, I sprinkle in finely chopped chives, their vibrant green hue adding a touch of whimsy to the canvas.

As the biscuits take shape, I can’t help but smile, knowing that soon, the aroma of warm, freshly baked bread will fill the air, wrapping me in a comforting embrace. With a gentle pat and a loving glance, I place them in the oven, where they will undergo their final transformation.

And as I wait, anticipation mingled with nostalgia, I am reminded once again of the power of simple pleasures and the joy found in the art of creation. For in these humble biscuits lies a world of memories, waiting to be savored with each buttery bite.



  • 2 tbsp everything bagel seasoning
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 6 tbsp cold butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped chives optional
  • 2 cups flower


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  • Cut the butter up in small cubes. Add the butter, chives, and work in the butter just until the mixture is crumbly, with some larger chunks of butter remaining.
  • Pour in the milk and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. The dough should be sticky.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface, and fold it over on itself 5-6 times.
  • Use your hands to flatten the dough to 1" thick and lightly dust a 2 ¾" round biscuit cutter with flour. Flatten out the dough into a 1 inch round and use a circle cutter/ cup to press into the dough. (Do not twist the cutter and push all the way down). Reuse the scrap dough and continue cutting.
  • Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with the melted butter and sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning.
  • Bake the biscuits for 20-25 minutes, or until they're light golden brown.
    Remove them from the oven and set aside to cool.
