A little extra buttermilk for brushing on the tops
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Sift flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and sugar into a large bowl.
Slice butter very thinly and work it into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. (I could tell you I use a pastry fork or blender, but that would be fibbing – I usually use my fingers.)
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour the buttermilk into it. Stir just enough to combine.
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and pat it down. Roll the dough ½ inch thick and fold in half. Roll it out again to ½ inch thick.
Using a round biscuit cutter or the top of a drink glass, cut biscuits out.
Transfer the biscuits to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Brush the tops of the biscuits with additional buttermilk.
Bake in preheated oven about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
