DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the butter and shortening into the flour until it forms small pieces.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the buttermilk. Stir until the dry ingredients are moistened. Use the first amount of liquid listed; add more if it seems too dry. You want a "wet" dough, but not a drippy one.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently 3 to 4 times.
  • Roll out to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut into biscuits with a medium or large round cutter.
  • Place together on a lightly greased baking pan.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.
  • Brush with melted butter, if desired. Serve while they are hot.
