 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            All-purpose flour
    3       ts           Baking powder
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Baking soda
    6       tb           Vegetable shortening
      2/3   c            Buttermilk
 
   HEAT THE OVEN TO 450F. Sift the flour with the baking
   powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in the vegetable
   shortening until mixture resembles bread crumbs. Stir
   in the buttermilk with a wooden spoon until just
   blended. Turn the mixture onto a floured surface, and
   knead 10 times. Pat the dough into a rectangle
   1/2-inch thick. Cut with a 3-inch cutter, and place
   biscuits close together on an ungreased cookie sheet.
   Bake in the center of the oven for 10 to 12 minutes,
   or until golden brown. Serve immediately. Makes about
   20. Biscuits can be made a day in advance and covered
   tightly in aluminum foil. Reheat in a 300F oven for 10
   minutes.
