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.
