DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, salt and baking soda.
  • Using pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Making a well in the center of dry mixture. Add buttermilk all at once to dry mixture.
  • Using a fork, stir just until moistened.
  • Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Quickly knead dough by folding and gently pressing 10 to 12 strokes or until dough is nearly smooth.
  • Pat or lightly roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with a floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter, dipping the cutter into flour between cuts.
  • Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake 450°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.
