Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cubed
  • 1 cup shredded extra-old Cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Method

In bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. With fork, stir in cheese and chives; stir in buttermilk to form soft dough.

On lightly floured surface, gently knead dough 10 times. Pat into 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick round. Using 2-1/2-inch (6 cm) floured round cutter and pressing scraps together, cut out 12 rounds.

Bake on parchment paper–lined baking sheet in centre of 425°F (220°C) oven for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 24 hours; warm in 350°F/ 180°C oven for 5 minutes.)
