  3. Cut shortening into sifted dry ingredients until like coarse crumbs.

  4. Make a well and add buttermilk all at once. Stir quickly with a fork only till dough follows fork around bowl. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface (Dough should be soft) Kneed gently with heel of hand 10 or 12 strokes. Roll or pat dough (I always pat) 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter or glass.
