Yummy to My Tummy: Alice's Buttermilk Biscuits

This recipe comes from the Apples of Gold mentoring program at our church. Alice, one of the mentors, is an amazing cook, so anything of hers is always awesome! These biscuits are easy & oh, so good. We had breakfast for dinner on Sunday night, including biscuits, sausage balls, scrambled eggs & fruit. The kids were so thrilled with our menu that we may have to make a habit of it.

Alice's Buttermilk Biscuits

2 C sifted all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
5 T shortening
1 C buttermilk

Combine flour, baking powder, salt & baking soda; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk all at once & stir until dough follows spoon around bowl. Turn out on floured surface & knead only until enough flour is incorporated to make it easy to handle.
Roll out to desired thickness & cut with 2-3 inch biscuit cutter.
Bake on ungreased pan in 450 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.Eagerly awaiting their food!
