Blue Cheese Buttermilk Biscuits

2 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour (or whole-grain pastry flour)
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup chilled solid vegetable shortening cut 1/2" cubes
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 tbl chopped fresh chives
1 tbl chopped fresh thyme
1 cup buttermilk plus
1 tbl buttermilk
Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk first 4 ingredients in medium bowl to blend. Add shortening; using fingertips, rub in until coarse crumbs form. Mix in 3/4 cup cheese, chives, and 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme. Make well in center; add 1 cup buttermilk and stir until dough forms, gradually mixing in dry ingredients.

Turn dough out onto floured work surface. Knead gently until combined, about 5 turns. Pat dough into 1-inch-thick rectangle. Cut into 8 squares. Transfer squares to baking sheet. Brush with 1 tablespoon buttermilk. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese and 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme. Sprinkle with pepper. (Can be prepared 4 hours ahead. Cover; chill.)

Bake biscuits until golden, about 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
