Cheddar Chive Buttermilk Biscuits - How do you make a bowl of canned tomato soup taste like a delicacy?

I made Cheddar Chive Buttermilk Biscuits for lunch today and served them on a lovely luncheon set of white Fireking that my friend, Deb gave me.  It's a beautiful sunny first day of spring and I have spring fever!  The laundry is on the line and I'm going for a walk this afternoon...
Here's the ingredient list for the biscuits...

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp  baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold butter or margarine, diced
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp chives
1 large egg
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a food processor, combine all the dry ingredients.

Cut the margarine into cubes and process with the flour mixture for about 5 seconds in the food processor.  Then add the cheese and chives (I use kitchen shears and cut into small pieces) and process for another 5 seconds.

Mix one cup of  buttermilk and one beaten egg together and pour into the food processor.

Then process until the mixture forms into a ball...

Then turn out onto a floured counter, roll and cut...

Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden.

Serve with soup and sweet butter - Enjoy!!!!
