Southern Biscuits 
Prep Time:
    20 min
Inactive Prep Time:
    hr min
Cook Time:
    20 min


    1 dozen

2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons shortening
1 cup buttermilk, chilled
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using your
fingertips, rub butter and shortening into dry ingredients until mixture looks like
crumbs. (The faster the better, you don't want the fats to melt.) Make a well in the
center and pour in the chilled buttermilk. Stir just until the dough comes together.
The dough will be very sticky.

Turn dough onto floured surface, dust top with flour and gently fold dough over on
itself 5 or 6 times. Press into a 1-inch thick round. Cut out biscuits with a 2-inch
cutter, being sure to push straight down through the dough. Place biscuits on baking
sheet so that they just touch. Reform scrap dough, working it as little as possible
and continue cutting. (Biscuits from the second pass will not be quite as light as
those from the first, but hey, that's life.)

Bake until biscuits are tall and light gold on top, 15 to 20
