   1. Heat oven to 475 degrees. Spray an 8 baking pan
   with cooking spray. 2. In a medium sized bowl, mix
   flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda
   until blended. Cut in shortening with pastry blender,
   or work it in with fingertips until lumps are no
   larger than small peas. 3. Stir in buttermilk ( or
   cream) and let stand for 2-3 min. dough is very wet.
   4. Pour remaining 1 cup all-purpose flour onto a
   plate. Flour hands well. Scoop up about 2 Tbsp. dough
   and scrape it onto the flour. Sprinkle more flour onto
   the dough. Gently pick up clump of dough and shape
   into a soft round by passing it from hand to hand,
   shaking off excess flour. Place in middle of prepared
   pan. Shape 9 more biscuits this way. 5. Brush tops
   with melted butter. Bake 16-18 min or until tops are
   evenly brown.
   
   These are the best biscuits I ever made!  PLEASE MAKE
   THEM FIRST WITH THE HEAVY CREAM.  IT IS MUCH BETTER
   THAN MAKING THEM WITH BUTTERMILK! This recipe came
