My Favorite Butter Biscuits

I love these biscuits because they are no-rolling-pin-required!

2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 stick butter cut into cubes
1 cup buttermilk

Combine dry ingredients in stand mixer with paddle attachments. Add butter cubes and mix until butter is pea-sized. Add buttermilk and mix until combined, do not over mix!

Turn batter out onto a floured surface. Turn it over so it is coated in flour and pat it into a flattened ball. Press with your hands until it is 1/2" thick. Use a 2.5" cookie cutter and cut out 8 biscuits. You can re-knead/shape the remaining dough and get out 2 more biscuits, they just won't be quite as light and fluffy as the others.

Bake at 350 for 16 minutes. Serve with butter and honey or jam.
