“This is an old recipe--I will not tell where from--but it is 1960 original Kentucky biscuit scaled down from an original I have. It is absolutely to die for. You will never make another biscuit after this.”

Directions

  1. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Cut in shortening.
  3. Add buttermilk; mix well.
  4. As told in recipe, look for a texture like "velvet". If sticky, dust with flour and work till smooth as velvet and either roll out by hand or on a floured surface ½-inch thick and cut.
  5. Bake at 450°F for 15-25 minutes on a lightly sprayed pan. Depending on oven, just make it golden brown. (Brush tops of biscuits with butter when you take them out of oven for a nice finish and taste).
