Mile-High Buttermilk Biscuits

2 c. flour
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. unsalted, cold butter
1/4 to 1/2 c. buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a bowl combine all dry ingredients. Cut cold butter into small chunks and using a pastry blender, knife or fork, cut butter into dry ingredients until coarse crumbs form. Slowly mix in buttermilk, until dough starts to come together.  Use as much buttermilk as needed to get the dough together and slightly wet.

Flour a flat surface, along with the dough so it doesn't stick, and flatten dough to 1 in. thickness. With a round cookie cutter or glass drinking glass, cut out biscuits. Lay on greased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Yields 6 biscuits.
