Description

Light and lovely, with the sharpness of cheddar and chives.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ cups Baking Powder
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • 8 ounces, weight White Cheddar Cheese, Grated
  • ⅓ cups Sliced Chives (or Green Onions)
  • 1-½ cup Cold Salted Butter, Cut Into Small Pieces, Plus More For Brushing
  • 2-½ cups Buttermilk

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cheese, and chives in a food processor. Pulse until everything is mixed together. Add butter and pulse until mostly incorporated, but with a few remaining chunks of butter. Pour in buttermilk while pulsing, stopping just when the dough comes together. (Add a little more buttermilk if dough is overly dry.)

Drop dough onto a baking sheet in 1/4 cup portions (bigger if you’d like!) and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with more chives!

If you do not have a food processor, cut together the dry ingredients with the butter, then stir in the other ingredients.

Note: Recipe can easily be halved.
