the trick is not to over mix the dough. A Light touch does it.
2 cup flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Power
1 Teaspoon Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Sugar
4 Tablespoon Crisco Butter flavored Shortening
10 oz Buttermilk
Sift together the first 5 ingredients,
Cut in the Shortening, using a cutting in tool or two knives ( using a scissor action)
Stir in Buttermilk til flour is blended, do not over mix.
Turn out on a floured surface ( I use a kneading cloth )
rolls out into a 1/2 inch circle
Cut with a 2.5 inch round cutter. ( hint in order to not re-roll the dough, use a method of tucking the cut edges in to make a round piece, by doing this you will never have to rework the dough. Which causes the biscuits to turn out flat and tough)
Place on a Parchment paper lined Cookie sheet or Jelly roll pan.
Bake at 375 for 12 minutes, or until lightly brown tops and bottoms.
