Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp
baking powder
3/4 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
sugar
4 oz
butter, cold (cubed)

Step-By-Step

1Make sure the butter is COLD!

Preheat oven to 450.
2Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cube COLD butter and cut into flour mixture.
3Add buttermilk and sour cream to flour mixture. Stir with a large fork just until combined (add a touch more milk if too dry)
4Flour the work surface and knead the dough not more than 10-12 times. Roll out dough 1/2" thick. Cut with 2 3/4" biscuit cutter. (At this point you could layer these single layer in a freezer safe parchment lined container to freeze for later use)
