1. Preheat oven to 400°. Stir first 3 ingredients together in a large bowl. Add sugar, baking soda, and 3 cups flour, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8 to 10 times, adding up to 1/3 cup more flour to prevent dough from sticking. Roll dough to 3/4 inch thick; cut with a 2-inch round cutter. Place biscuits on a lightly greased (with cooking spray) baking sheet.
3. Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
