Biscuit recipe from my ex-mother-in-law. Do not over work your dough or the biscuits will be tough. Only mix the scraps back in once.

Ingredients

4 c
all-purpose soft wheat flour, such as white lily
2 Tbsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 c
cold butter, cubed
2 c
buttermilk
melted butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2
Sift together the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut the butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles small peas. Stir in buttermilk with a fork until the dough forms a ball.
3
Turn the dough out onto a well floured sheet of wax paper. Sprinkle dough with flour, and flatten into a disk. Cover, and chill for 15 minutes.
4
Remove the wax paper, and turn dough out onto a well-floured surface; sprinkle with flour. Pat dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a 3 inch cutter, reshaping scraps once. Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
5
Bake at 450 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Brush immediately with melted butter.
