Step 1

Heat oven to 450 degrees F.

Step 2

In a bowl whisk together the dry ingredients (flour - baking soda); using a pastry cutter or two knives work the butter into the mixture until the butter is the size of small peas.

Step 3

Add the buttermilk, cheese and chives to the mixture, stirring with a fork to combine and to form a loose dough.

Step 4

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and pate into a 6"x9" rectangle; fold in thirds and pat into a 6 x 9" rectangle again.

Step 5

Dip edges of a 3" round biscuit cutter (we use a coffee cup) into flour and punch out the biscuits (you should get 6 or more depending on the size of the cutter/coffee cup). Scrap leftover dough and pat together to cut out a few more biscuits, if you wish).

Step 6

Transfer biscuits to a parchment covered cookie sheet.Brush tops with cream.

Step 7

Bake until browned (14-16 minutes).

Wow...these are awesome biscuits! Light and fluffy! I did not pat down and cut, just scooped them onto the baking sheet. Used a aged sharp Tillamook white cheddar which paired beauteously with the fresh chives! Into the favvy file it goes. Thanks Ellie for sharing. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
