4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup scallions, chopped
3/4 cup low-fat Cheddar, grated
7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 (12 oz.) bottle dark beer, such as Guinness
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoon paprika


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add scallions and Cheddar; mix well. Fold in butter and beer, mix until just combined.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface; pat down to 1-inch disk. Use a 3-inch round cutter to cut biscuits. Gather scraps, pat down again and cut remaining biscuits. Place biscuits on ungreased baking sheet.

Brush biscuits with milk; sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 25 minutes, until golden. Serve warm.
