So today, Yohboh noticed that his half and half had soured. I wanted to throw it away but he wanted biscuits. And since I am all about using things, I complied.
2 cups winter wheat flour (White Lily is what I like)
1.5 Tablespoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons butter, cold, cubed like dice
1 cup buttermilk (I used the soured half and half), cold
Preheat the oven to 450
Sift the first four ingredients together. I did that twice to get a nice fluffy powder. Add the butter and mush it with your fingertips. It should look like stone ground grits. Add the liquid and combine until it just comes together.
Pat it out onto a floured surface to about an inch thick. Cut into 12 pieces. put onto a greased baking sheet. Indent the center slightly of each biscuit with the thumb.
Bake 15-20 minutes.
Yohboh ate six.
Makes about a dozen.
