Makes 12 to 15 biscuits

How to Make It

Heat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, 2 knives held crisscross fashion, or your fingertips, add the butter to the flour mixture and mix until crumbly. Add the buttermilk and, with a wooden spoon, stir until combined. The dough should be very sticky. Using the spoon or your fingertips, drop heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the baking sheet. Bake until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.

Tip: If you prefer, make biscuits from a mix, using cream instead of milk and an extra tablespoon or two of butter.

VERY good flavor. The texture was a little crumbly but i used nonfat milk + 1 tbsp vinegar in place of buttermilk so that may be why. Definitely worth a try, very easy and quick recipe.
