  1. In a large mixing bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Add shortening and cut with a fork or pastry cutter. Do not overmix. The shortening should resemble small peas.
  3. Stir in buttermilk until the dough is soft. Knead dough 10 to 12 times only.
  4. On a floured surface roll the dough 1" thick. Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass. Use a larger circle for big size biscuits.

  6. To cook, take out the desired number of biscuits and place on a lightly greased baking sheet or pan. Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for about 10 minutes until golden brown.
