Biscuits (almost like Grandma's)

My maternal Grandmother was locally renowned for her biscuits. I've tried for years to duplicate them. This morning I had some buttermilk to use and these came out almost like hers.

Note to self: need to try a gluten free version. Thinking of using coconut keifer for buttermilk by So Delicious.

4 cups all purpose flour
6 oz. cold butter (or 1 1/2 sticks - 12 Tbs)
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse meal. Sift in the salt, soda, and powder and then mix the buttermilk in until just moistened. Scoop out pieces about the size of a meatball, it should make 12. I placed them on the cookie sheet so they were touching (or it could be put in a pan). Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
