Biscuits
1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F).
2. Whisk flour, salt, sugar and baking powder together.
3. Working quickly, combine butter and flour mixture with your fingertips until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs, leaving large chunks of butter marbled within the flour.
4. Add buttermilk and mix to combine. Bring together to form a dough. Add more buttermilk if too dry.
5. Roll out dough until it is about 2 cm (4/5 in) thick. Do not press too hard so that dough remains light.
6. Cut out rounds of dough with a floured cookie cutter and place on a greased baking tray. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes.
7. Bake at the topmost rack for about 10 minutes, until biscuits have risen and are golden brown.
8 Serve with Mascarpone mustard and meatballs.

Note: Sweet Mascarpone mustard is best made with Händlmaier's German mustard, but wholegrain mustard is delicious too. Just add 1 tsp honey to sweeten it up.
