2-1/2 Cups Flour
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1-1/2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Butter or Margarine, softened
1 Cup Buttermilk
(Substitute for Buttermilk: Place one tablespoon vinegar into a measuring cup. Add enough milk to equal 1 cup. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. DO NOT OVERMIX! If using a cookie sheet to bake biscuits on, let batter sit for a few minutes to thicken up. Place equal amounts in 12 greased muffin tins, or drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet Bake for about 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
