Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a large bowl, sift in the 2 cups of flour, the 3 teaspoons of baking powder and the 1 teaspoon of salt.
Stir the 1 teaspoon of baking soda into the 1 cup of buttermilk and set aside. ( It will expand some as it sits)
Then dice the butter into small pieces so it will blend easier....blend the butter in the flour mixture until it resembles course meal.
Now add your buttermilk mixture to the bowl with the other ingredients.
Blend with pastry blender or a fork until everything is well blended.
Dump it out of the bowl onto a floured surface and form into a large ball and knead a few times until you get a manageable texture, working in a little flour, so that it's not too sticky to handle, but also not stiff or rubbery.
Flatten out with hands or a rolling pin.
Cut with biscuit cutter or cut squares with a knife. It's really your preference from here, they'll taste good either way!
Bake in oven for 10 - 12 minutes.
Pull 'em out...butter 'em, (or not!)....eat 'em up!!!!!
You can substitute whole buttermilk and real butter with fat free buttermilk and smart balance margarine, (same measurement quantities), but this recipe contains the 'good fats' and is all natural, so really, you might not want to!!!!!!
