Ingredients:  
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup vegetable shortening, cold, (cut into 1/2-inch pieces)
1 1/2 to 2 cups buttermilk, plus additional for brushing

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375.

Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Cut in the shortening using a pastry blender or your hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and add 1 cup buttermilk. Using your hands, quickly fold the dry ingredients into the buttermilk until a sticky dough forms. You may need to add more buttermilk.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Gently fold the dough over itself 3 or 4 times to create layers. Press the dough out to 1 1/2-inches thick and cut with a floured 3-inch biscuit cutter. Lay the biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet and brush the tops with buttermilk. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until risen and golden brown.
