Directions

  1. PREHEAT oven to 400°F; COMBINE 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon sugar, 4 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda in a large mixing bowl; CUT in shortenings until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. STIR in 1 cup buttermilk just until a soft dough forms (dough will be very loose and sticky at this point).
  3. SPRINKLE flour over a large wooden board; TURN dough onto a floured board and knead gently 10 to 12 times or until no longer sticky, re-flouring board as necessary while kneading.
  4. DIVIDE dough in half; GENTLY pat or roll each half into an 8-inch circle 1/2-inch thick.
  5. CUT out biscuits – pressing straight down – with a 2-inch biscuit cutter.
  6. REFORM scraps, working it as little as possible and continue cutting.
  7. PLACE cut biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet with edges barely touching; BRUSH tops of the biscuits with whole milk.
  8. BAKE for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. IMMEDIATELY brush biscuits with margarine (or butter) after baking.
  10. SERVE hot and enjoy.
