1960 Original Kentucky Buttermilk Biscuit

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
14 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
14 cup shortening
1 cup buttermilk (if out of buttermilk,just add a tablespoon of vinegar to cup of milk and mix,works fine)


Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in shortening. Add buttermilk; mix well. As told in recipe, look for a texture like "velvet". If sticky, dust with flour and work till smooth as velvet and either roll out by hand or on a floured surface 1/2-inch thick and cut. Bake at 450F for 15-25 minutes on a lightly sprayed pan. Depending on oven, just make it golden brown. (Brush tops of biscuits with butter when you take them out of oven for a nice finish and taste).
