2 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon sugar

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces

¾ to 1 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons heavy cream

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Into a medium bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.
  3. Pour ingredients into a food processor, add the pieces of butter, add ¾ cup of buttermilk slowly while pulsing until mixture becomes a ball – you can add more buttermilk if needed.
  4. Put ball on a lightly floured surface and gently knead just until dough is formed. Pat into a round with your hands, about 1-inch thick. With a floured 2-inch cutter, cut out rounds.       Do not twist cutter when cutting – straight down cut and straight back up.
  5. Transfer biscuits to a parchment covered baking sheet. Brush tops of biscuits with cream.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden. If using convection oven use less time – about 6 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 12 biscuits.
