Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, stir flour, chives, sugar, and pepper until blended; using a pastry blender, cut in shortening and cheese, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Drizzle 1 1/2 cups buttermilk over the flour mixture, stirring it in with a large fork until a moist dough forms, adding the remaining 1/4 cup buttermilk if dough seems dry (it should be slightly sticky). Turn dough out onto a floured surface. With floured hands, gently knead 3 or 4 times until dough comes together.
  3. Dust surface with a little more flour, then roll dough 3/4-inch thick. Using a 2 1/2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter, cut out rounds. Transfer dough rounds to a baking sheet, 1 inch apart. Gather dough scraps and repeat rolling and cutting, for a total of 24 biscuits.
  4. Make a slight dimple in the center of each biscuit to help the top rise evenly. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter, if using. Serve warm.
