Recipe Details:


1 cup self-rising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sugar
2 1/2 tbsp Crisco
1/2 cup grated Jack Cheese
1 heaping tbsp green onions, white parts only, minced
1/2 cup buttermilk


Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and sugar using a fork. Add Crisco and mix together using the back of the fork or your hands. The mixture should resemble cornmeal. Stir in the cheese and green onions. Gently stir in the buttermilk until just blended, being careful not to overstir. Using your hands or an ice cream scoop, drop 4 balls of dough onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes.
