1/4 c

1
egg
1 1/2 - 2 c
buttermilk, more or less depending on your altitude

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
2
Add the shortening and butter, cut into flour with a Pastry Cutter or two forks until the mixture resembles small peas.
3
Beat the egg and add the buttermilk to the flour at the same time, Combine just until well mixed, do not overwork.
4
Roll out the dough to about 1" thick, cut biscuits into rounds Place on cookie sheet or skillet brushed with Crisco. Brush tops of biscuits with butter before baking.(Tip: Sometimes I pat the dough out into a big square and cut them with a knife or pizza cutter, I cut the dough into a square shape, this way you use all the dough and have no scraps, (Who said biscuits have to be round???)
5
Bake in a preheated oven at 450* degrees until golden brown, rotate the pan halfway through baking time to insure even browning. Mine took about 18-20 minutes to brown.
