    Heat oven to 425°. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter and cheese, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in olives and buttermilk just until moistened and soft dough forms.
  • 2
    Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead 5 or 6 times. Roll or pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

  • Crazy about cheddar? Try it instead of the provolone in these irresistible biscuits.
  • A round glass that's 2 1/2 inches in diameter makes a good stand-in for a biscuit cutter.
