Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
In a large bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Whisk to combine.
Add cold butter and cut in using a pastry blender (or fork). You’re looking for a somewhat crumbly texture. You want to see small bits of butter about the size of a pea.
Gently stir the milk into the flour a little bit at a time. The mixture will somewhat cohesive but slightly sticky. It should also start to pull away from the bowl. You may not need all of the milk.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead about 10 times or until the mixture smooth. If the dough is super sticky or sticks to the surface add a little more flour. If too dry, add milk 1 tablespoon at a time.
Gently pat out the dough until it’s 1-inch thick. Then using a large biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits and place them on a large baking sheet.
Pat out any remaining dough and repeat the cutting out process.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden.
