How to Make It
Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add egg and buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 3 or 4 times.
Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness; cut into 2 1/2-inch circles. Make a crease across each circle, and fold one half over. Gently press edges to seal.
Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
