Preheat oven to 475. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together and combine well. Make a hole in center of flour mixture and add in the shortening. Gradually add in the buttermilk mixing with a fork to break up the shortening. Now start combining well with hands until dough comes together and is smooth.
Pinch off and roll in hands and place (biscuits touching) on greased cooking stone (or pan). Press down with knuckles a bit. Bake at 475 for approximately 10-12 minutes or until desired browness.
Note: Any solid shortening is fine to use, even the butter crisco. In these biscuits I used Lou Ana Coconut Oil, which is actually solid shortening.
*You may have to add a little more buttermilk if needed.
