  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 3/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 ounces cold butter, cut into chunks

  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt to evenly disperse everything.
  3. Add your butter chunks, and use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour mixture until you have a coarse mixture resembling wet sand.Stir in shredded cheese and dried sage.
  4. Add your buttermilk to this mixture and stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to form your dough. This could take a bit of work. Be patient. It will come together.
