Southern girl's biscuits

I know this page is usually reserved for French recipes, but as a good southerner I have to share this amazing biscuit recipe. They are so light and fluffy, and easy to make!

2 c flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 T butter
1 1/2 c plain yogurt
1/2 c milk

Mix dry ingredients. Add butter and work in with pastry cutter until completely mixed in. (You can also pulse it in a food processor.) Add yogurt and milk and stir until just mixed. Shape batter into balls about 1 inch wide and place on a cookie sheet, spacing well. Bake in preheated oven at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until just golden.
