Recipe from The New York Times
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. butter, chilled
1/4 c. chopped sage (I used pineapple sage, because that's what I planted)
3/4 c. + 1 Tbsp. buttermilk
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1. Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
2. Dice butter and add to flour mixture along with sage. Cut in with a pastry cutter or fork (should be very coarse).
3. Stir in buttermilk until just combined. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and with lightly floured hands, knead a few times. Shape into a square and cut into 9 biscuits.
4. Place on baking sheet and brush tops with melted butter. Bake at 450˚ for 12-14 minutes, until golden brown.
