Buttermilk Biscuits

This is a basic buttermilk biscuit recipe that makes a good base for strawberry shortcakes. But the biscuits are also great toasted with butter and jam for breakfast, or served along a bowl of seafood chowder,

Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups all-purpose (plain) flour
1 Tablespoon granulated (white) sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
1 cup cold buttermilk

Preheat oven to 400F. 
Blend together the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Cut in the butter until crumble. Stir in enough buttermilk to bind the dough, then knead on a floured surface until combined.
Roll dough out to 3/4 inches thick. Cut into 3 inch circles.
Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for about 18 minutes until golden.
Makes 12 biscuits.
