#3346 - Amish Biscuits

(by Shirley McNevich)

2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
4 TBSP Crisco shortening
1 cup buttermilk

In a bowl add flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda--stir to mix. Add the Crisco--mix with a pastry blender to make crumbs. Add the buttermilk--mix just until combined (dough will be sticky). Flour your counter, place the dough on the flour, flour the top of the dough and roll dough out to 1/2" thick. Cut biscuits with a biscuit cutter or the top of a drinking glass. Place the biscuits on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 425 degrees for 13-15 minutes.
