Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar in mixing bowl. Add grated cheese. Mix margarine or shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. With a fork, stir in buttermilk to make soft dough. Turn out onto lightly floured board and knead about 10 times to form a smooth ball. Do not over knead or biscuits will not be as tender. Roll out to a 6 x 6 inch square. Place on greased baking sheet, cut dough into 12 portions. Do not separate, leave biscuits in a square. Bake at 400F until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
These biscuits are best served with chicken, honey, jams or preserves.
