Buttermilk Biscuits

Red Lobster can eat their heart out! This stuff is good.

2 cups All-purpose Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
4 oz (1 stick) cold butter cut into 1/4-inch cubes
2 tbsp melted butter (for brushing tops of biscuits)
3/4 cup cold buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450.

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt together into a mixing bowl.
Cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some slightly larger lumps of butter.
Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk.
Mix with a fork until mixture forms a soft, slightly sticky ball (adding additional buttermilk as necessary for dough clumps to form ball).
Divide dough into 12 equal portions.
Drop portions of dough about 1-inch apart on an ungreased sheet.
Carefully brush dough tops with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
Bake until biscuits are light golden (about 10 to 12 minutes).

You can add a little shredded cheese to the batter for cheesy biscuits.
