1/8 lb, grated sharp cheddar

3 scallions , sliced

2 cup flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup shortening

1 cup whole milk

preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a large bowl, place dry ingredients and whisk until well combined. Stir in sliced green onions (scallions) and grated sharp cheddar cheese. Cut in the shortening until it is the size of large grains of rice. Pop in refrigerator until chilled. Remove from refrigerator and stir in cold milk until combined. If dough is too wet add a little flour at a time just until you can handle the dough. Place dough on cool surface and pat to about 1/2 -1 inch thick depending on your preference. Place on parchment lined baking sheet . If  placed close together,  a higher rise is created. If place about 2 inches apart they won’t rise as high but just as good. Your preference. Bale for about 15-20 minutes in a preheated oven set at 450 degrees. Bake until golden and cooked through. Test by taking a knife and gently lift from the side. If it lifts easily they are finished. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.
