Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits

2 c. sifted flour (bread flour is best)
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/3 c. Crisco
1 c. buttermilk


Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in the shortening with a fork or pastry blender, it will be coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk all at once and stir until the dough follows the fork around the bowl. Turn out and knead only 5 to 6 times. (Too much handling makes them tough.) Roll to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut with round cookie cutter or glass (cup) dipped in flour. Place in greased pan. Brush gently with melted butter. Bake at 375 to 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. When baked, brush again with melted butter
