2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 1/2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
1/4 cup fat-free milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400°.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in chives and cheese. Combine sour cream, milk, and egg; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times. Pat dough into a 7-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 10 wedges, cutting to, but not through bottom of dough.

Bake at 400° for 16 to 18 minutes or until lightly golden. Serve warm.
