Made From Scratch Tall and Fluffy Biscuits
2 1/4 cups unbleached flour, plus extra from kneading
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoon butter or margarine, frozen or very cold
1/2 cup club soda or carbonated soda
1/4 cup buttermilk or milk, cold
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Whisk dry ingredients together. Grate frozen butter or cut very cold butter, into small pieces. Incorporate butter into dry mixture with a pastry blender or a fork. Stir in club soda and buttermilk just until dry ingredients are moistened. The dough will be soft, airy and look like a sponge. Turn onto a floured surface. Knead 7 to 10 times, adding as little flour as needed. Roll or pat out, to 3/4 " thick. Cut into desired size, place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake 8-12 minutes. Take out of oven and brush with melted butter if desired.
