Chedder 'N' Chive Biscuits

Every now and again, I do in fact feel like baking something savory. Now, usually this craving comes in the form of buttery, flaky, biscuity goodness, but it's also been known to rear its head in a sharp, tangy, cheddary way. As it did last week.

So off I went to hunt for a recipe that would be easy to throw together with stuff I already had in my pantry. And boy did this one fit the bill!
These biscuits are fluffy, cheesy, salty, and basically just all kinds of spot-hitting. Plus, they required little more than a bowl, a spoon, and a baking sheet. That's my kind of recipe. So what are you waiting for? Doesn't salty, fluffy, crispy, golden, cheddary biscuitness sound good right now?!

Preheat oven to 375F/190C.

In a measuring cup, mix:
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (or garlic salt, if, like me, you can never get enough of the stuff)

Fill to the one-cup line with flour, then place in a large bowl and add:
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 bunch chives, chopped.

Stir in:
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp mayo (Or fat free yogurt!)
1 tsp butter, melted.

Drop onto ungreased nonstick cookie sheet or bake in muffin cups (2/3 full) 15-20 minutes, until just golden.
