These are wonderful and very versatile. Feel free to substitute your favorite cheese in place of the parmesan and whatever extra for the scallions. I have made these biscuits with scallions, chives, green and black olives, and sun-dried tomatoes. They are great with blue cheese and cheddar cheese, as well.

    Dice the butter and toss with the flour mixture until finely coated. Add the scallions and parmesan cheese and toss until finely coated. Add the buttermilk and mix with your hands until it just comes together. (You will get messy. Just accept it.) Do not over-knead.
