Buttermilk Bicuits

Note: This is just memories of home in my mouth! When baking always make sure your baking soda is fresh or your biscuits (or whatever you are baking) won't be as fluffy and flaky as you want them to be.


BUTTERMILK BISCUITS


Ingredients:
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 tsp bacon grease
2/3 cup buttermilk



Directions:
Preheat oven to 450°. Mix flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add shortening, buttermilk and stir just until dough holds together. A more buttermilk if needed. Knead lightly until dough is smooth. Roll out to one-half inch thickness. Cut into two-inch rounds. Bake approximately 12 minutes or until golden.

Ditto on the sigh. These look mouth watering.
