Directions:
Put flour in a large mixing bowl and cut in the shortening with a fork until the consistency of coarse meal. Add buttermilk and soda all at once. Stir with a fork until mixture leaves sides of bowl and forms a soft, moist dough. Turn out on floured surface, and sprinkle dough lightly with flour. Knead dough gently 10 times until no longer sticky. Roll out 1/2-in. thick; cut with 2 in. floured cutter. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 450 for 8 to 12 minutes until golden brown. (For sweet milk biscuits, use sweet milk and no soda.)
