  • Heat oven to 450 and adjust oven rack to center position.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt.
  • Cut in chilled shortening and butter until you have pieces the size of small peas.
  • Make a well in center of dry ingredients; pour in buttermilk. With a wooden spoon, gently blend dry ingredients into the buttermilk, just until mixture is clumping together. If necessary, add a few more teaspoons of buttermilk.
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured board.
