amount measure ingredient -- preparation method 
  --------------------------------
2 cup  unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp  salt
2 tsp  baking powder
1/2 tsp  baking soda
1/2 cup  solid vegetable shortening
2/3 cup  buttermilk
 
preheat the oven to 425 degrees. combine the flour, salt, baking 
powder, and baking soda in a mixing bowl and stir them together with a 
fork. drop the shortening into the dry ingredients and, using two 
knives or your fingertips, work the shortening into the dry ingredients 
until the mixture is in fine, irregular crumbs resembling soft bread 
crumbs. add the buttermilk all at once and stir with a fork just until 
the dough forms a cohesive mass. turn the dough out onto a smooth 
lightly floured surface and knead 12 to 14 times (about a minute). pat 
into an 8- by 8-inch square about 1/2-inch thick, and, using a knife, 
cut the dough into 2-inch squares. place the biscuits on an ungreased 
baking sheet (with biscuits touching if you want them light and fluffy, 
or at least 1-inch apart if you want them darker and crisper). bake for 
15 to 18 minutes and serve very hot. this recipe yields approximately 
16 biscuits.
