3 1/2 cups flour, plus more for dusting
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup softened margarine
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onion, green parts only
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
HEAT the oven to 375°.
SIFT together in a large bowl the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and a pinch of salt.
ADD the margarine and mix together by hand until mixture is slightly dry and crumbly, and the margarine is reduced to pea-size crumbs.
MIX in the cheddar cheese and green onions.
ADD the buttermilk and knead.
TURN the mixture out onto a floured cutting board or work surface and knead a few more times. Roll the dough to about an inch thick and form into a rectangle.
