Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

3 cup all purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/3 cup chopped garlic scallions

1-1/2 sticks chilled butter, cut into chunks

1-2/3 cup buttermilk

Additional flour for kneading

Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well-mixed.

Stir in the cheddar cheese and scallions.

Using a pastry blender, work the butter into the dry ingredients until the butter pieces are smaller than a pea.

Gently stir in the buttermilk, being careful not to over mix. The mixture will be very sticky and liquidy.

Heavily flour a work surface, and dump the dough onto the flour.

Flour the top of the dough well, and then pat out until 1/2-inch thick.

Fold the dough in half horizontally, then pat down again until 1/2-inch thick, adding more flour to cover sticky parts.

Fold the dough in half vertically, then pat down again until 1/2-inch thick. Repeat this process 5-6 more times.

Flour a biscuit cutter and press straight down to cut the biscuit.

Transfer the biscuit rounds to an un-greased baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
