|6 cups||all-purpose flour|
|1/4 cup||baking powder|
|8 ounces||, weight white cheddar cheese, grated|
|1/3 cup||sliced chives (or green onions)|
|1 1/2 cup||cold salted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for brushing|
|2 1/2 cups||buttermilk|
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.
