    2       c            All-purpose flour
    2       ts           Baking powder
      1/2   ts           Baking soda
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   c            Chilled butter -- (1 stick)
                         Cut into
            sm           Pieces
      3/4   c            Buttermilk
    2       tb           Chopped chives
 
   Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Combine the flour,
   baking powder, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl.
   Stir with a fork to blend and mix well. Add the butter
   and, using you fingers as a pastry blender, work the
   butter and flour together until the mixture looks like
   irregular crumbs. Add the buttermilk and the chives.
   Mix only until the dry ingredients are moistened.
   Gather the dough into a ball, pressing it to hold
   together and turn it onto a lightly floured surface.
   Knead lightly about 12 times. Pat the dough into a
   circle, keeping it about 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick. Use a
   2-inch cookie cutter to cut rounds and place on a
   baking sheet. Bake about 10 minutes, or until the tops
   are lightly browned. Serve warm. Yield: 15 biscuits
