Tea Time-Buttermilk biscuits


One of the biggest baking debates in my family is biscuits. My grandmother's recipe (the current biscuit champion) can't be duplicated and she doesn't write any recipes down. I've been searching for the perfect recipe for years. I've tried every combination of ingredients- cake flour, white lily flour, butter, oil, milk, cream.
This recipe although nothing like my grandmothers has become my go to recipe.

2 cups all-purpose flour
6 tbsp butter cut into small pieces
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 buttermilk

Mix dry ingredients together.
Mix in butter with a pastry blender.
Add buttermilk. Mix until just blended.
Pat dough out until 2 inches thick. Fold in half. Repeat three more times.
Cut with a biscuit cutter. Makes approximately 7 biscuits.
Put on cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
