All-Purpose Flour (3 cups)
Baking Powder (1 Tbsp)
Baking Soda (1/2 tsp)
Salt (1/2 tsp)
Granulated Sugar (2 Tbsp)
Unsalted Butter (3/4 cup)

Buttermilk (3/4 cup)

Roll or pat dough to about a 1 inch thickness. With a floured biscuit cutter (or clean tin can with both ends removed) cut out biscuits – press, do not twist the biscuit cutter.
