Recipe from Taste of the South
3 cups Southern all-purpose flour, such as White Lily
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, diced
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Using hands, gently knead 3 or 4 turns. Pat dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch star cutter, cut biscuits, using dough scraps only once. Use as a topping for cobbler.
Sweet Biscuits also make a great foundation for shortcake. Simply place on parchment-lined baking sheets and bake at 450 degrees until light golden brown, usually 12 to 15 minutes.
