The southern girl in me is always happy with a plate full of biscuits and these were certainly no exception. These biscuits plus a little spread of butter, yum! This recipe is from Crazy for Crust.
3 cups flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter (plus 1 tbsp for brushing)
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 tbsp chopped chives
Heat oven to 425. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Cube the butter into small pieces and mix it in using a fork or pastry blender. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Mix until the dough comes together. Stir in the cheddar cheese and chives. On a floured surface, roll out the dough until it's about 1/2 inch thick. Cut the biscuits and place on a lightly greased sheet pan. Brush with 1 tbsp of melted butter. Bake in the oven for 17-20 minutes.
