  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, thyme, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
  3. Using a fork or pastry blender, cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  4. Mix in buttermilk until a sticky dough forms. (You may need to add up to 1 tablespoons more buttermilk.).
  5. Drop 8 mounds (about 1/3 cup apieces) on to a nonstick baking sheet; lightly pat tops to flatten slightly.
  6. Bake until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through. Transfer to rack to cool slightly, but serve warm.
