Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut the cold butter into the flour until it resembles coarse meal. Stir in the sage. Stir in the buttermilk until the dry ingredients are just moistened.
  3. Lightly flour your hands and work the dough into a square about 7" x 7", 1/2" thick, on a floured surface. Cut the dough into 9 squares, and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Brush the tops with the melted butter and bake until golden brown, 12-14 minute.
  5. Serve warm.

Excelent! These would have earned a five, but were a little dry. I think the reason was that I didn't add the full amount of buttermilk,because the recipe says to mix until JUST moisened. Also my oven cooks a little hot. The flavors were excelent though, and I will be making these again!

These were fabulous!! I forgot the other TBSP. of buttermilk until it was too late but they didn't need it, they still mixed and baked up great. I used my whole wheat pastry flour and it does great with these. The sage is heavenly. Thank you so much for a great recipe!!
