Betty Crocker's Buttermilk Biscuits

Whenever I hear "buttermilk", I am reminded of Charlotte's Web and I think, "I'm gonna give that pig a buttermilk bath." After making these delicious biscuits, I thought I wouldn't mind a bath in buttermilk! (You might just see buttermilk "dripping" into some of my other recipes. :) I made these biscuits for breakfast this last week and I had to hide them from myself because I just about wiped out the batch! We cut them out in heart shapes, they were really cute. :) I've got to find my camera charger! It is driving me nuts not to be able to take pictures of food. :)

Betty Crocker's Buttermilk Biscuits

1/2 Cup Butter

2 Cups Flour,All-Purpose
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
3/4 Cup Buttermilk

1) Mix the flour with the baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized bowl.

2) Cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles fine crumbs.

3) Stir in the milk until the dough leaves the side of the bowl (dough will be soft and sticky).

4) Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly 10 times.

5) Roll or pat the dough into a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Cut with a floured 2-1/2 inch round cookie cutter and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, touching for soft sides and about 1 inch apart for crusty sides.

6) Bake at 230° C (450° F) until golden brown (about 10 to 12 minutes).
