2 c. flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
5 Tbsp. chilled solid vegetable shortening
1 c. buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 425° F. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut the shortening into the flour mixture until coarse crumbs form. Add buttermilk, tossing with a fork until dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gather into a disk. Knead lightly a few times until smooth. Pat dough until 3/4 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or a glass dipped in flour, cut out biscuits. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake biscuits until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.

Makes 12 biscuits.
