Chilling Time20 min
Cooking Time12 min
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Sift the dry ingredients in a large bowl and cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or with two knives until a coarse meal texture is obtained.
Add buttermilk and knead lightly but thoroughly. The dough should be soft but not sticky. If it is, add a little more flour.
Knead for 1 minute, wrap in foil or wax paper and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
Roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thick on a lightly floured surface and cut with a biscuit cutter. If you don't have one, a drinking glass of the desired diameter will work.
Transfer biscuits to a dark baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.
