"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous
2 c. all purpose flour 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 2 T. sugar 5 T. cold unsalted butter 1 c. buttermilk
Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in butter and blend with fingers until coarse meal forms. Add buttermilk until sticky dough forms. (If not sticky, add a little more than a cup.) Drop 6 biscuits 2" apart on cookie sheet or in an iron pan. Cook at 450º for 12-15 minutes. Also great for Strawberry Shortcake!!
