Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup fresh chives
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar
  • 1/3 cup roasted, peeled, and diced small red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup roasted, peeled, and diced small yellow bell pepper
  • 1 to 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg, beaten
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

  • In a food processor, blend flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper briefly (about 3 pulses). Add butter and process to a "mealy" consistency. Add herbs, cheese, and roasted red peppers, processing briefly to combine. Transfer mixture into a large bowl, add 1 cup buttermilk and stir to moisten. If needed, add more buttermilk, up to 1/4 cup.

  • Place dough on a floured surface and form into a disk, 3/4 to 1-inch in thickness. Cut into wedges, brush top of each wedge with egg wash. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Place on rack and let cool to room temperature.
