  Categories: breads
       Yield: 8 servings
 
   1 1/2 c  all-purpose flour
     1/2 c  cake flour
     1/2 ts salt
       2 ts baking powder
     1/2 c  cold unsalted butter
     3/4 c  buttermilk or heavy cream
       1    (or more)
 
   Preheat the oven to 450F; set rack in middle level. Prepare biscuit        
   dough.                                                                     
                                                                              
   COMBINE THE FLOURS, salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl and stir       
   well to mix. Rub in the butter by hand or with a pastry blender until      
   the mixture is mealy. Stir in 3/4 cup of the buttermilk with a fork        
   and continue stirring gently until the dough begins to hold together.      
   (If the dough is dry, add more buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time.)        
   Sprinkle the work surface generously with flour and scrape the dough       
   onto it. Fold the dough over on itself two or three times. Use the         
   dough immediately . Pat dough into a 6-by-12- inch rectangle and cut       
   into eight 3-inch biscuits with a sharp, floured knife. Transfer to a      
   parchment-lined cookie sheet. Paint tops with buttermilk.  Bake for        
   10 to 15 minutes, until well risen and golden.
