1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk (1%)
Cooking spray
Light butter and honey (optional)


Preheat oven to 450°.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife.

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk; stir just until moist.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 4 or 5 times. Roll dough to 1/2- inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with butter and honey, if desired.
