Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for rolling
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons fine salt
  • 6 ounces sharp cheddar or Gruyere, grated (1 1/2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 1/2 cups cold buttermilk

Cook's Note

Mix It Up
Substitute Parmesan and chopped fresh sage for the cheddar and chives.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a food processor, pulse flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until combined. Add cheese, butter, and chives; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Add buttermilk and pulse until combined (do not overmix).

  2. Step 2

    Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until it just comes together. With a floured rolling pin, roll out dough 3/4 inch thick. With a floured 2 3/4-inch biscuit cutter, cut out 16 rounds (reroll and cut scraps). Place biscuits, 1 1/2 inches apart, on a baking sheet and bake until puffed and golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
