2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder  

1/2 teaspoon baking soda 

2 teaspoons sugar  

1 teaspoon salt  

2 tablespoons finely minced chives 

1/2 cup grated cheddar

1 cup cold buttermilk  

8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted 


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt. Then add the chives, cheddar and buttermilk, and stir it all together until a dough begins to form. Slowly pour in the melted butter; stir until everything is just combined and moistened.
  3. With a 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop the dough onto the baking sheets, spaced 2 inches apart. 
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway through. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
