DIRECTIONS

  • Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 400°F.
  • Whisk dry ingredients in a medium-size bowl.
  • Using pastry blender, cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly with a few pea-size pieces of butter.
  • Stir in enough of the buttermilk to make a soft, sticky dough.
  • Turn out onto a lightly flourd surface.
  • Quick knead dough just until it comes together being careful not to overknead.
  • Roll out dough until it is 1/2-inch thick.
  • Using a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 18 minutes.
  • Variations: Biscuits with Cheddar, Chives and Pepper--after you have cut butter into mixture, add 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese, 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives and 1/2 teaspoon coarsly cracked black pepper.
  • Mix gently, then stir in the buttermilk.
