Buttermilk Biscuits

I really don't have a sweet tooth, so I don't do all that much baking. I like making bread, pretzels, bagels, biscuits--savory baking. I made these on a Saturday morning for breakfast. My best tip for biscuits is to eat them hot--they decline in deliciousness as they cool. 
2 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons to 1 1/2 tablespoons  sugar
1 tablespoon  baking powder
3/4 teaspoon table salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
9 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup uttermilk.

What to do: 
Preheat oven to 400 °F and grease a cookie sheet. Mix all the ingredients! You may need to use your hands. The dough will be craggy and stiff. Wad it up into little balls (this recipe makes 6) and place on the greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 min, or until golden brown. 
Eat with jam, or make into bacon and egg  sandwiches, or just eat alone. 
Buttermilk being added to flour.

Melted butter. This is why they taste good.

After! With a pug photo bomb.
Look at that lovely crumb.
 A great breakfast, and these can be incorporated into meals a million ways. Biscuits and gravy, breakfast sandwiches, chicken and biscuits, etc.
