Cheddar biscuits are a thing of beauty. Now you can make them in the comfort of your own kitchen. They can go perfectly with pasta or fish, steak or soup. A cheesy spin on buttermilk biscuits, they are a must-have for fall and winter.

Here's what you need:

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2  teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into 8 pieces

1 cup shredded sharp or smoked cheddar cheese

1/4 cup fresh chopped chives

2/3 cup buttermilk 

Chives, for garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pulse first 3 ingredients in a food processor 4 times or just until  combined. Add butter and pulse 5 to 6 times or until the mixture is crumbly. Add  cheese and chives and pulse just until blended. Add the buttermilk and pulse  just until blended. (The dough will still be crumbly.)

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat dough to a 3/4-inch  thickness; cut with a 3-inch round cutter dipped in flour. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden.
