  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in the buttermilk. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 2 minutes. Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet, roll into a 6x6 inch square, and cut into 12 even sections. Do not separate.
  3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until a knife inserted in the center of the square comes out clean. Separate into biscuits, and serve hot.

This is the second biscuit recipe I have tried recently. It may be me but they came out odd shaped and very doughy in the middle. They were simple to make and the flavor is pretty good

Wow, this was very good. I never make biscuits because they always seem so dry, not these! One thing I did do was freeze the stick of butter and then grate with a box grater (I saw this on a c...

The best biscuits!!! I used half whole wheat flour and added 1/4 tsp salt. Let the cut biscuits sit for 10-15 minutes before baking and they will be VERY tall and light!

September 2008: Perfect! I've made these biscuits w/o making any changes to the recipe. The only change I have made is that I grate the cold butter. I do that for all of my bread/crust recipes b...

I've made this recipe several times now, so it's about time I review it. I always follow the recipe exactly and have never been disappointed with the results. I used to use a buttermilk drop bis...

Okay, I LOVE biscuits and am always trying new recipes. I think these are the best ones I've ever tasted! They have a thin crispy shell on the top and bottom , are moist and golden inside and ha...

Ok Here goes my tips. First of all, this is an excellent recipe. This is the recipe I will use from now on. Tips 1. Sift the dry ingredients together. 2. Put butter in freezer to harden then...

Aside from adding a half teaspoon of salt I prepared these just as the recipe directs, being careful not to overwork the dough. I don't make biscuits often, so I doubt it's my biscuit expertise...
