1/3 cup butter, cut into pieces
2 cups self-rising flour
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 (5.25-ounce) package buttery garlic and herb spreadable cheese
1 (16-ounce) jar Alfredo sauce
1 (16-ounce) package frozen crawfish tails, thawed and undrained
1 teaspoon Creole or seafood seasoning
Garnishes: fresh chives, shaved Romano cheese


Cut butter into flour with a pastry blender until crumbly; add Parmesan cheese and chives. Add buttermilk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times. Pat or roll dough to 3/4-inch thickness; cut with a 3-inch round cutter, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 425º for 12 minutes or until golden. Set biscuits aside, and keep warm.

Combine wine and green onions in a large nonstick skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook 6 minutes or until wine is reduced by half. Add spreadable cheese; reduce heat, and whisk until cheese melts. Stir in Alfredo sauce. Add crawfish meat with liquid and Creole seasoning; cook over medium-low heat until thoroughly heated.

Split warm biscuits in half horizontally. Spoon half of crawfish mixture evenly over bottom biscuit halves; top with remaining biscuit halves. Spoon remaining crawfish mixture evenly over the top of each biscuit. Garnish, if desired.
