Ingredients:

1-1/3 cups buttermilk (I use med. size coffee cup)
1/3 cup shortening (I dip my hand and get a palm full)

Directions:
Directions:
Use large flat bottom bowl (I use a wooden bowl)

1. Sift flour into bowl, make hole in the middle with hand. 2. Pour buttermilk in the hole, place shortening in buttermilk. 3. Mix buttermilk and shortening together with fingers and hand.
4. Once you have small pieces of shortening in the buttermilk, start mixing small amounts of flour into milk/shortening mixture by moving hand in circles, and using the other hand to add small amounts of flour until mixture thickens to dough. 5. Scrap the dough off my hand with my other hand in the pile of dough. Wash Hands. 6. Start from bottom of dough & turn into middle of pile adding small amounts of flour into the mixture. This is kneading.
I do this in a circle motion all the way around the pile of dough until you get right the consistency. (smoother, slight sticky), Wash hands. 8. With slightly floured hands pinch off biscuit sized balls of dough. Knead & roll in palm of hands until smoother. 9. Place ball of dough on greased pan, flatten slightly with three fingers. 10. Bake in preheated oven @ 450 degrees until brown.
