Buttermilk Biscuits from Auntie E's Kitchen

There are a view things I like to use to make life easier in the Kitchen. First thing is a *Pastry cloth or a thin cotton towel. I add flour to it rubbing it into the cloth. fold it by first the two ends meet in the center, then fold the opposite sides to the middle. then fold to cloth in half. put in a large Baggie and store until needed. Second thing is a Pastry cutter.  Third thing is Parchment Paper.
 the trick is not to over mix the dough. A Light touch does it.


Buttermilk Biscuits

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.
