Buttery Buttermilk Biscuits

I finally made biscuits that were light, fluffy, a little buttery and, well, edible!!!  I was so excited I just about drove my oldest by bonkers while riding in the truck yesterday talking about my biscuits!  ~smile~   It was quite an accomplishment for me since I am a Southerner, coming from a line of great women that made the BEST biscuits and couldn't make a descent biscuit.  Here they are...what do you think?

Buttery Buttermilk Biscuits
Makes 9 to 12  biscuits depending on size

2 1/4 to 2 1/2 Biscuit Mix
3 Tablespoons butter, frozen or very cold
1/3 cup club soda
1/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Put 2 1/4 cups Bisquick in a large bowl.
Grate butter over biscuit mix
Mix together fork(s) until mix resembles coarse sand.
Add club soda and buttermilk.
Mix until a soft ball forms.
Turn out on a surface lightly sprinkled with Bisquick.
Knead until smooth, adding more Bisquick if needed, usually between 7-10 times.
Roll or pat into a rectangle at least 3/4".  The thicker the dough when cut, the higher the biscuit.
Cut with a biscuit or cookie cutter.  Or, like me, a canning jar.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 7 to 10 minutes.  Until lightly browned.

What do you like on your biscuit?  I like mine plain or with a pat of butter.
