Buttermilk Biscuits

 I don't know about you, but I reeeeaaally like a hot biscuit in the morning.  ESPECIALLY when their home made.  I mean, come on.  Would you take one if someone offered?  Eeeeeeven if you're on one of you're  strictest diets?
Thought so.
This recipe makes like, 3 dozen biscuits, though, and with my older brother gone we had a bazillion left over.   Which, with no problem were perfect for this French Toast Casserole, if you ask me.

Preheat oven to 450.
First, plop in 4 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoons salt, 2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda, and 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder.  mix until it's combined.

Add 1/3 cup shortening and 1/3 cup cut up butter (5 1/2 Tbs.).

Cut them together with a pastry cutter or 2 knifes.

Add 1 1/4 cups buttermilk and lightly mix until it's combined.  The dough should be sticky.

Plop the dough onto a lightly floured surface.  Try to handle the dough as little as possible, if you do, the dough will become very tough.

Role it out 1/3-3/4 inch thick.  cut with a biscuit cutter and place on a baking sheet.  Bake for 11-14 minutes until golden brown.
