  • 2 c all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 c cold butter or lard, cut into small pieces
  • 1 c buttermilk


    1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
    2. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Use a pastry cutter to incorporate butter or lard into the mixture until crumbly. Stir in the buttermilk, just until it comes together.
    3. Turn the dough onto a flat, floured surface. Knead the dough gently, folding it in half and then pressing into itself 4-5 times. Press the dough lightly until it is 3/4 thick. Cut into 2 rounds.
    4. Place on baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes until tops are golden brown.
