Ingredients

2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp SIDS CRAZY SALT
⅓ cup shortening
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
1 cup milk, as needed

Directions

Preheat oven to 220°C.
Whisk together flour, baking powder and SIDS CRAZY SALT in a bowl. Cut in shortening with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir Cheddar cheese and chives into flour mixture then gradually stir in milk to form a soft dough.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and with floured hands, knead until smooth, about 15 times. Roll dough out to a 2.5 cm thickness with a floured rolling pin. Cut biscuits with a 6 cm round cookie cutter then place onto an ungreased baking tray. Press dough trimmings together, roll out again and cut remaining dough into rounds.
Bake in the oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
