Directions:
Mix dry ingredients together; cut in butter or margarine with pastry cutter until it is in small pieces (as in a pie crust). Stir in buttermilk to make a soft dough (you may have to add 1 or 2 Tbsp more).

Scrape the dough out of the bowl and onto a floured countertop. Knead a couple of times and then pat the dough into a circle about 3/4 in thick. Using a long, sharp knife, cut the dough circle into 8 pie shaped wedges (you can cut round biscuits if you wish). Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet or spray a regular baking sheet with cooking spray. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve immediately.

If you wish to substitute regular milk for the buttermilk, use a total of 3 tsp baking powder and omit the soda.
