Virginia Buttermilk Biscuits

Yield about 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

How to Make It

  1. Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt; stir well. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle buttermilk evenly over flour mixture; stir until dry ingredients are moistened.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 10 to 12 times. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 1 3/4-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on ungreased baking sheets. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
