Ingredients

2 c
all purose flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
2 tsp
granulated sugar
1/2 tsp
cream of tartar
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1/2 c
butter or shortening (i highly recommend butter)
3/4 c
buttermilk or sour milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 450. In a large bowl, stir together all dry ingredients.
2
Knead in butter, but leave clumps pea sized as the clumps produce a flaky biscuit.
3
Stir in buttermilk.
4
Knead on a lightly floured surface about 10 times. Roll out, but you want this dough thick. At least an inch to an inch and a half thick.
5
Use a floured biscuit cutter or cup to cut out biscuits. Placing them closely together on a greased or parchment covered cookie sheet will prevent them from toppling over as they rise.
6
Bake for about 10 mins. Enjoy!
