Buttermilk Biscuits

Before we start, I have to admitt that I can't help myself, when I say buttermilk buscuits, think of a certain Sir MixaLot song from the 90's. You know what I mean. If not go ------> here. (it's a youtube link)
  "Now buttermilk biscuits, here we go, Sift the flour, roll the dough. Clap your hands and stomp your feet, move your butt to the funky beat"
I had to.

Let's get cooking.

Originial Recipe by The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.
Adapted recipe & photos by Something Different For Dinner

4 cups of all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup shortening
1/3 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
1 1/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F

In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Stir together

Add the shortening and cold butter pieces.
With a pastry cutter, or two knives, cut in the shortening and butter
 until mixture resembles coarse crumbles.

Pour in the buttermilk and mix gently with a fork until just combined.

The biscuit dough will be sticky and crumbly.

Flour a clean surface. Roll dough out, and cut out your biscuits.
I used the top of a small glass. However thick you like biscuits will determine
how thin you roll your dough out.

Bake for 11 minutes, or until golden brown.

Enjoy and thanks for coming by. Easter is only one day away and I'm doing my baking today and house cleaning. We are having dinner here at our house for our family. Look for my posts after the holiday.
We are going to be busy with church, dying eggs, visiting family, and eating food.
Happy Easter and spring to all of you. No matter what you believe or how you view the world. It's all about family and friends and being together sharing love and wonderful food.
Cheers *Kelly
