- 2 cups all-purpose flour (plus extra for kneading)
- 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
- 1 Teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 Tablespoons fresh thyme
- 1 Tablespoon rosemary
- 1/4 Teaspoon cardamom
- 1 3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 large egg
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- (extra salt and some oats to sprinkle on top)

- In smaller mixing bowl, add egg and beat slightly.
- In the egg bowl, add butter milk and honey.
- Whisk until well mixed.
- Add cheese to flour bowl and mix well.
- Then add buttermilk/egg mixture to the flour bowl and mix with a spoon until a dough starts to form.
- Ensure you have about 1/2 cup of extra flour in a small bowl next to you – sprinkle some over the dough if it already looks fairly moist.
- Then, taking some additional flour your hands, start kneading the dough.
- *It is going to be very sticky – just keep kneading and adding flour as needed until the dough starts to dry up and form a ball.
- After several minutes of kneading, you will be able to form a ball.
- Place dough on a baking sheet that is sprayed with non-stick.
- Then take a serrated knife and cut an X in the middle of the ball.
