DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 450°.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
  • Cut in the shortening, using your fingers or a pastry cutter, until the flour mixture has the consistency of course-ground cornmeal.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and add the buttermilk.
  • Stir the mixture until the buttermilk is fully incorporated.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead carefully a couple of times.
  • To make the biscuits, pinch off a 3-inch ball of dough and mold a slightly rounded ball.
  • Place the biscuits onto an ungreased baking pan.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops of the biscuits turn a light golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter.
