  • To make biscuit topping, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture is crumbly.
  • Stir in buttermilk with a few quick strokes.
  • Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface and pat out to 1/2-inch thickness.
  • Cut the dough into random-sized pieces and shapes and arrange on top of vegetable filling in a kind of crazy quilt pattern, letting the filling poke through in spots.
