Preparation / Directions:
MAKING THE BISCUITS
ONE Heat oven to 475°. Spray two 8" round pans with cooking spray. Combine
flours, sugar, salt, baking powder, and soda.
TWO With a pastry blender, cut the shortening into the flour mixture until
shortening is no larger than the size of a big pea.
THREE Stir in the buttermilk completely with a wooden spoon. Let stand 2 to
3 minutes. The dough will be very wet.

onto the floured work surface.
FIVE Sift remaining flour over dough. Flour hands. Turn and fold dough over
several times in flour and gently pat to 3/4" thick.
SIX Using a floured 21/2" cutter, cut dough into rounds don’t twist! With a
spatula, place cut biscuits into pans (6 per pan).
SEVEN Gently reroll scraps. Don’t overwork the dough or add additional
flour. Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter.

guarantee, these biscuits will make you go white-eyed!
