Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups All-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup Vegetable shortening
1 cup Grated cheddar or other sharp cheese
1/2 cup Chopped fresh chives
1 cup 2% milk
3 tablespoons Butter - (1/4 stick) -- melted

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

n a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt with a fork. With a pastry cutter, cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the grated cheese and chives. Add the milk and stir just until the mixture forms a soft dough that pulls away from the side of the bowl.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead quickly to mix the dough thoroughly. Roll dough into cylinder. Cut into 1-inch slices and place on cookie sheet. Brush with the melted butter. Bake until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.

Makes 1 1/2 dozen biscuits.

Comments: Drop-style biscuits are a little heavier. When baking, be sure to use precise measurements for all ingredients.
