Southern Biscuits
 
2 cup  flour
4 tsp  baking powder
1/4 tsp  baking soda
3/4 tsp  salt
2 Tbsp  butter
2 Tbsp  shortening
1 cup  buttermilk, chilled
  preheat oven to 450 degrees.
 
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda 
and salt. Using your fingertips, rub butter and shortening into 
dry ingredients until mixture looks like crumbs. (The faster the 
better, you don't want the fats to melt.) Make a well in the 
center and pour in the chilled buttermilk. Stir just until the 
dough comes together. The dough will be very sticky. 
Turn dough onto floured surface, dust top with flour and gently 
fold dough over on itself 5 or 6 times. Press into a 1-inch thick 
round. Cut out biscuits with a 2-inch cutter, being sure to push 
straight down through the dough. Place biscuits on baking sheet 
so that they just touch. Reform scrap dough, working it as little 
as possible and continue cutting. (Biscuits from the second pass 
will not be quite as light as those from the first, but hey, 
that's life.) 
Bake until biscuits are tall and light gold on top, 15 to 20 
minutes. Recipe courtesy Alton Brown
