Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits
1 stick butter
2 c flour
1/2 t baking soda
1 1/2 t baking powder
1 t salt
3/4 c buttermilk

1. Slice butter and place in freezer for about 5 minutes; sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl.
2. Cut the butter in with a fork until the mixture is the consistency of coarse sand; add the buttermilk and continue to cut the dough.
3. Turn the mixture out onto a floured surface, flour your hands, and work the dough until it comes together; roll the dough out until it is 1/2-3/4" thick; use a biscuit or round cookie cutter to cut biscuits and then place them in the freezer for at least 20 minutes.
4. Preheat oven to 475*.
5. Remove biscuits from freezer and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. They should be touching.
6. Bake for 20 minutes.
