Homemade Buttermilk and Black Pepper Petite Biscuits

1 c Flour
1 ts Baking powder
1/8 ts Baking soda
1/4 ts Salt
1 tb Cracked black pepper
2 tb Vegetable shortening
1/4 c Plus 1 teaspoon buttermilk


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and blend thoroughly. Cream in the shortening with your fingers or a fork, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the buttermilk a little at a time and, using your hands or a fork, work it in just until it's thoroughly incorporated and you have a smooth ball of dough. Do not overwork or overhandle the dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough with a rolling pin to a circle about 1/2-inch thick. Using a small round cookie cutter or the rim of a shot glass, press out twelve 1-inch rounds. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Yield: 1 dozen biscuits
