Buttermilk Biscuits


2/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups sifted self-rising flour*
1/3 cup vegetable shortening


Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Stir baking soda into buttermilk and set aside. Sift flour into medium bowl; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in buttermilk mixture until just combined. Knead dough 3-4 times; roll to 1/2-inch thickness on lightly floured board. Cut into 2-inch rounds; place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12 to 14 minutes. Makes 8 to 10 biscuits.
