List of Ingredients
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ cup shortening (butter, margarine, or a combination)
- 1 cup buttermilk
- Preheat the oven to 450°F. Coat two glass baking dishes with vegetable spray and put them in to heat.
- Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or two knives. Mix in the buttermilk. Place on a floured surface and pat down to ½ inch thick. Cut into 12 biscuits, gathering up the scraps and patting them down again to make the final cuts.
- Remove heated dishes from the oven. Put biscuits in, touching one another, and bake until golden, about 12 to 14 minutes.
Makes 12 biscuits.
