2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
4 chives chopped
1½ cups heavy cream 
2 T. butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Use an ungreased baking sheet. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, black pepper, and chives in a mixing bowl. Stir the dry ingredients with a whisk to blend. Add 1½ cups of the cream to the mixture, stirring constantly. Gather the dough together; when it holds together and feels tender, it is ready.

Place the dough on a lightly floured board. Pat the dough into a square that is about ½ inch thick. Cut into 12 squares and dip each into the melted butter so all sides are coated. Place the biscuits 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes, or until the biscuits are lightly browned. Serve hot and enjoy.
