#3440 - Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits

(by Shirley McNevich)

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

In a bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt--stir to mix. Add Crisco and butter--mix with your hands to make crumbs. Add the cold buttermilk--work the mixture with your hands just until the dough forms. Use your hands (NOT a rolling pin) to spread the dough on a floured counter to 1" thick. Use a biscuit cutter (or the greased top of a drinking glass) to cut the biscuits and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 15-19 minutes or until golden brown.
