Cheese Biscuits

1 cup buttermilk
1/4 stick butter, melted
3/4 cup grated sharp Cheddar
1/3 cup shortening
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cup self-rising flour

Optional: chives, snipped

Preparing the biscuits:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together using a fork; cut in shortening until it resembles cornmeal. Add cheese. Stir in buttermilk all at 1 time (and chives, if using) just until blended. Do not over-stir. Drop by tablespoonsful, or use an ice cream scoop, onto a well greased baking sheet. Or use this baking dish for crispy edges. Brush dough with melted butter. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

Makes 16 to 20 biscuits
