Chive Biscuits

This is mostly the Joy of Cooking recipe for whole wheat biscuits with a bit of changing up to make it chive-worthy.

1 3/4 c flour (I used mostly hard red wheat with a smidgen of white flour thrown in. The recipe called for more but we didn't have it and it still came out just fine.)
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
3/4 t. salt
1/3 c. (5 1/3 tablespoons) butter
1 c. buttermilk (or sour cream)
chives to taste (I cut in about 2 tablespoons of chives)

Blend all ingredients except buttermilk in mixer until pebbly. Don't let it get to a solid mass. Add buttermilk and chives and mix.

I used a cookie scoop to make mini-biscuits cooking them for 10 minutes at 400F degrees. I love my cookie scoop and it makes dishing things out so much easier. The biscuits come out looking like bite-sized puffs.
