In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, savory, baking soda and salt.

Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until crumbly. Drizzle with buttermilk, tossing with fork until mixture clumps into soft dough.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface; pat into 10-inch (25 cm) square; cut into 12 rectangles.

Topping: Mix buttermilk with mustard; brush over tops of biscuits. Sprinkle with garlic salt.

Place biscuits, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Bake in 425ºF (220ºC) oven until light golden, 12 to 15 minutes.

Serve warm or let cool on rack. (Make-ahead: Let cool completely. Store in airtight container for up to 2 days.)
