-|XXX| 1. XXX+|4 cups All Purpose Flour| 1. Preheat oven to 450°.
-|XXX| 2. XXX+|1/2 teapoon baking soda| 2. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Add butter and cut into flour mixture quickly, until it resembles a coarse meal. Do not use your fingers for this, as they will only cause your butter to melt too quickly. You want to work //fast//. As my mother says you have to “sneak up on them”. ​
-|XXX| 3. XXX+|2 tablespoons baking powder| 3. Add buttermilk. Work this in with a wooden spoon until it is just barely combined. Resist the urge to mix it more or add extra flour or any of that. Just work in the  buttermilk and leave it at that.
-|XXX| 4. XXX+|2 teapoons kosher salt| 4. Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface and PAT (do NOT roll – pat! Use your hands!) into 1/2 thick round. ​
-|XXX| 5. XXX+|12 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into cubes| 5. Using a wine glass or biscuit cutters or what have you, cut out biscuits and arrange on your baking stone or cookie sheet TOUCHING one another (this is very important, it will help them rise up nice and tall and will also keep your sides fluffy). Roll scraps together and make ugly biscuits, no need to reroll and recut.

 +|1 egg| 6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Pull out as soon as they’re done and eat ’em hot!|

 +  * This is a pretty good base biscuit recipe - it can be built upon with the addition of cheddar and chive for a more savory biscuit, or dried blueberries and a bit of glaze for a sweet biscuit
