 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Plus 2 tbsp cake flour
    2       ts           Baking powder
      1/4   ts           EACH baking soda and salt
      1/2                Stick cold margarine (not
                         Spread) -- cut in small
                         Cubes
      3/4   c            Buttermilk
 
   Heat oven to 450.  Have a baking sheet ready.
   
   In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking
   soda and salt.  Cut in margarine with pastry blended,
   or work in with fingertips until lumps are no larger
   than small peas. Stir in buttermilk with a fork until
   mixture clumps together. Press dough into a ball.
   
   On a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured
   rolling pin, roll dough into a 10x6-inch rectangle.
   With the long edge facing you, fold in both short ends
   so they meet in center. Fold dough in half (as if you
   were closing a book), forming a packet 4 layers thick.
   Roll dough into a 6-inch square.
   
   With a floured knife, cut dough into 16 squares, using
   a straight downward motion with each cut (don't saw
   dough).  Place biscuits 1 1/2 inches apart on
   ungreased baking sheet.
   
   Bake 10-12 minutes until biscuits are lightly browned.
   Removed to a wire rack to cool.
