Yield: 8 Servings
|2 cups||All-purpose flour|
|2 teaspoons||Baking powder|
|½ teaspoon||Baking soda|
|½ cup||Shredded cheddar cheese; up to 1|
|¼ cup||Butter or margarine; cut up|
Measure and mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chives and cheddar cheese. Add the butter or margarine. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs.
Lightly beat the egg with the buttermilk.
Pour in the egg/buttermilk mixture and stir with a fork until the mixture comes together.
Turn out onto a floured board and with floured hands knead the dough 5 or 6 times.
Place the rounded dough onto a greased baking sheet and, using a floured hand, press the dough out into a circle about 8 inches in diameter.
Using a large floured knife, cut into 8 pie-shaped segments.
Bake at 425ø for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm with fresh butter and enjoy! *If you don't have buttermilk on hand, add 1½ teaspoons of lemon juice to a measuring cup and then fill with milk to the ⅔ mark. Let it set while you are preparing the other ingredients. The lemon juice will turn the milk into a buttermilk substitute that is just a good as the real thing.
