Buttermilk biscuits

I took this recipe from and was the first time I tried this recipe. I have to say it will probably be my new recipe for biscuits as these biscuits were quite tasty and so much better than the frozen or canned biscuits you can buy.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 stick (1/4 cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

3/4 cup well-shaken buttermilk

1 tablespoon milk or cream for brushing biscuits

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 425°F.
Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda onto a sheet of wax paper, then sift again into a bowl. Blend in butter with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk and stir with a fork until a dough just forms (dough will be moist).

I rolled them out to about 3/4 of an inch thickness than used a glass to cut my biscuits.

Bake until pale golden, 12 to 15 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool to room temperature.
