Directions:
Preheat oven to 425. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add shortening and blend with a fork or pastry blender until mixture is coarse. Then, using a fork, stir in the buttermilk. Do not overmix. Put on a floured board and knead just a few times. Cut with a floured biscuit cutter or a glass. Do not handle the dough too much as it will get tough.
Place in a well greased baking pan and bake for 15-20, or until biscuits are golden brown.

I used to really look forward to going to my Aunt Dorothy's house because she made the best biscuits!!
I hope that these are as good as hers!
