Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450˚.
  2. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda into a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Add cheese and chives.
  4. Toss to evenly distribute.
  5. Cut butter into flour mixture using a pastry cutter or two knives. Mixture should resemble coarse meal.
  6. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk.
  7. Stir quickly and lightly with a fork until mixture just comes together, about 1/2 minute.
  8. Turn dough out onto a flat surface and very lightly knead until dough comes together (again, about 1/2 minute).
  9. If you need to add a sprinkling of flour to help with kneading, that's fine.
  10. Pat dough out to a thickness of approximately 3/4 inch.
  11. Cut biscuits with a 2-inch biscuit cutter or sharp knife.
  12. Place on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
  13. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
