Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir with a fork to blend and mix well. Add the butter and, using you fingers as a pastry blender, work the butter and flour together until the mixture looks like irregular crumbs. (can also do this part in a food processor to combine the dry ingredients well -- if you do so, then just put into a bowl to stir in your buttermilk and chives). Add the buttermilk and the chives to your dry ingredients. Mix only until the dry ingredients are moistened. Gather the dough into a ball, pressing it to hold together and turn it onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly about 12 times. Pat the dough into a circle, keeping it about 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick. Use a 2-inch cookie cutter to cut rounds and place on a baking sheet. Bake about 10 minutes, or until the tops are lightly browned. Serve warm.Yield: 15 biscuits
Note: can make 2 batches and fit them all onto one cookie sheet. I rolled out about 1" thick, made fewer biscuits.. took about 12 min to cook. Also good without the chives.
