Buttermilk Biscuits

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp. baking powder
tsp. baking soda
tsp. salt
cup butter
1 egg
cup buttermilk

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. With your clean hands, combine butter into flour mixture until crumbly like cornmeal. Blend egg and milk together. Add to flour/butter mixture. Mix until combined and knead until dough is soft and workable. Be cautious not to over-knead. On a lightly flour-dusted counter top, pat dough until it is approx to 1 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or drinking glass dipped in flour, cut dough into circles and put on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
