A County Fair winner several times. 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. baking soda 1/3 c. shortening 3/4 c. buttermilk Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and soda; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk all at once. Stir until dough follows fork around bowl. Turn onto lightly floured board; knead 8 to 10 times. Roll 1/2 inch thick. Cut with 2 1/4 inch cutter. Makes about 1 dozen. Put biscuits on an ungreased sheet or skillet. Brush tops with butter, bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes. I always double this recipe, and to make them more attractive, I cut them out with a scalloped cookie cutter. When in a hurry, I roll the dough as directed and cut into squares to save time.
