- Preheat oven to 220* C (428* F) Fan.
- Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add the butter and mix with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add the spicy cheese spread (kopanisti if possible) and the fresh onions.
- Add the buttermilk and stir just until all the ingredients are combined. The mixture will be quite loose or runny and cannot be molded by hand like regular dough.
- Spoon 12 heaping tablespoons of the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave space between each drop of cookie mixture (about 5 cm).
