3 cups all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup Crisco shortening

Sift the flour to make sure there are no lumps. Add in the baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Add the Crisco slowly, working it into the dry ingredients.

Next add the buttermilk, working it into the mixture
too. After everything is thoroughly mixed, plop it
down on a floured counter top or cutting board.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. While
it's heating up knead your dough until it is about
the consistency of clay that kids play with in
grade school. You can make it a little dryer
if need be by sprinkling more flour on your
counter or cutting board. As you knead your dough
it will pick up more of the flour.

After you have it the right consistency you can
shape your biscuits by hand or using a cookie

Place you biscuits on a cookie sheet that
is either lightly greased or lightly sprinkled with
flour. If you use the flour option, be sure not to
put too much.

Bake these biscuits for roughly 18 minutes on the
middle rack in your oven (depends upon how hot
your oven is and how far this rack is from the
top). If the rack is too low you can move the
biscuits to the top rack the last minute of so
to get them browned just the way you want. Leave
them on the middle rack and thy should turn out
lightly browned.

Pop them out of the over and eat them while still
piping hot. That's the only way to get the butter
to melt just right.
