Buttermilk Biscuits

This recipe was taken from a Taste of Home Cookbook (submitted by Vera Reid)

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup shortening
¾ cup buttermilk

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk; knead dough gently. Roll out to ½-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450º for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 10 biscuits.
