2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. baking powder
5 Tbsp. shortening(I use 1/2 vegetable shortening(solid) & 1/2 butter)
1 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees(F).  Sift dry ingredients.  Then cut in butter
with pastry blender or use your hands.  Make a well in the middle, pour in
buttermilk, and using a fork lightly mix until flour is moistened
thoroughly.  On floured surface, knead 3 times.  Pat dough out until 1/2
inch thick or thicker if you like.  Cut into rounds with an inverted
drinking glass or a biscuit cutter.  Set biscuits into a greased pan so
that their edges touch.  Bake 12-15 minutes at 450 degrees.
