Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt with a fork. With a pastry cutter, cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the grated cheese and chives. Add the milk and stir just until the mixture forms a soft dough that pulls away from the side of the bowl. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead quickly to mix the dough thoroughly. Roll dough into cylinder. Cut into 1-inch slices and place on cookie sheet. Brush with the melted butter. Bake until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Makes 1 1/2 dozen biscuits. Comments: Drop-style biscuits are a little heavier. When baking, be sure to use precise measurements for all ingredients.
