Buttermilk Biscuits

3 cup all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
2/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 450o.

In a medium bowl, sift together the baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk. Stir the dough quickly, with a fork, until the dough follows the fork around the bowl. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead gently for about 3 minutes adding flour as needed to keep it from sticking.

Roll out the dough to a half inch thickness. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out the biscuits and place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1/2 an inch apart. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

If you don't have any buttermilk, put one tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar in a 1 cup measure. Fill with milk and wait at least one minute to use.
