- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- In a liquid measuring cup, combine the almond milk and vinegar. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- With the large side of a cheese grater, grate the frozen butter into the dry ingredients.
- Add the grated Parmigiano Reggiano and chives, and gently combine.
- Pour the liquid, which has now become “buttermilk,” into the mixing bowl. With a spoon or your hands, gently mix the ingredients until they come together. Transfer the mixture to a lightly floured surface at least 12 inches in diameter.
- With a rolling pin or wine bottle, roll out the dough into a circle about 1/2-inch thick.
- With a biscuit cutter or wide-mouth Mason jar lid, and starting at the outer edge, cut out the biscuits, taking care to cut the circles as closely together as possible.
- Place the biscuits on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Gather the scraps and form them into a rounded disk. Roll out another circle, cut more biscuits, and add them to the baking sheet. Discard the rest of the dough, or make hand-formed biscuits with any remaining scraps.
- Bake the biscuits for 15 to 18 minutes, or until browned.
