TRUDY A's notes for this recipe:
This recipe is soft and tasty, similar to a famous fast food restaurants breakfast biscuit, so good with honey and butter and my homemade Blackberry Jam.

Directions

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.
