Flour 2 cups, spoon into measuring cup and level off
Baking powder, 2 1/2 teaspoons
Baking Soda 1 teaspoon
Salt 1 teaspoon
Granulated Sugar 1 teaspoon
Butter, unsalted and cold 5 tablespoons, in chunks
Buttermilk 1 cup
Put several spoonfuls of flour onto a cool surface (a marble slab is ideal) and turn out the dough. Knead lightly just to smooth the dough, pat into a 1/2 inch thick round, and use a 2 inch cutter to make biscuits. Repat the scraps and cut again - makes 18.
For scones, pat into a round, cut into 8 wedges, brush with buttermilk, sprinkle on sugar.
Put onto a silicone mat on a baking sheet: biscuits just touching each other, scones separate.
Bake at 450 F for 10 to 12 minutes (425F convection oven). Eat hot and fresh with butter.
