Ingredients:  
Nonstick cooking spray
2 c. self-rising flour
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. sugar
4 tbsp. shortening
2/3 c. heavy cream
approximately 1 c. buttermilk - you'll mix in until the dough resembles cottage cheese
1 c. bleached all-purpose flour - for shaping
2 tbsp. melted butter

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 and spray an 8-9 inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the self-rising flour, salt, and sugar in medium mixing bowl. With fingers or pastry cutter work the shortening into the flour mixture until no shortening lumps are larger than pea size. Stir in the cream and buttermilk and let stand for 2-3 minutes. This dough is very wet and should look like cottage cheese. Pour the all-purpose flour onto a plate or pie tin and flour your hands. Spoon a biscuit-size lump of wet dough into the flour and sprinkle some over the wet dough to coat the outside. Pick up the dough and roughly shape into a biscuit shape. Shake off the excess flour and place in the cake pan. Continue to add biscuits to the cake pan and be sure to push them tightly against each other so they will rise up and not spread out. Bake just above the center of the oven until lightly browned. 15-20 minutes and then brush with melted butter. Cool in the pan for 1-2 minutes and then dump them out on a plate and cut them apart.

Personal Notes:
This is a recipe that I got from Shirley Corriher on a cooking show a long time ago. She was one of those chef's that told you how and why things happen the way they do in cooking. Once you eat these biscuits you won't care why or how it happened; you'll just want it to happen over and over again!
