How to make it
- Preheat oven to 450° F. (Back then it was a wood stove in the winter but Daddy got him an extra job so he could buy Mamma an electric stove to use in the summer time.
- Stir baking soda into flour and mix well.
- Mix shortening into the flour using your clean fingers until it kind of looks like little bitty gravels (coarse crumbs).
- Add buttermilk and stir with them clean fingers until you get a soft dough.
- Put out onto a floured counter top and push around (knead) easy about 10 times.
- Roll dough to about a half inch thick with this rollin pin and cut into circles with the top of a jelly jar (about a 2 inch cookie cutter).
- Place biscuits, just barely touching each other in a biscuit pan with no lard spread on it (ungreased pan).
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes or til they are nice and pretty (golden brown).
- Makes 12 to 14 biscuits.
