Granny's Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tbs melted butter
Place dry ingredients into a bowl.
Cut in butter until it becomes crumbly.
Add buttermilk and stir just until moistened.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.
Knead dough about 4 times (don't over handle or biscuits will be tough).
Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness.
Cut out biscuits with biscuit cutter and place on lightly greased baking sheet.
Brush tops with melted butter.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown in a preheated 450 degree oven. Makes 12 biscuits.
Hint: For crispy biscuits make sure the biscuits don't touch in the pan, and for softer biscuits let the sides touch each other.
