2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon coarse cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or fork, or work it in with your fingers. Add the buttermilk to make a soft dough, mixing just until the dough holds together. Flour your hands. Pull of a piece of dough the size of a biscuit and dip the wet edge into the extra flour. The roll or pat into a biscuit. Place slightly touching, on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake until golden brown--8-10 minutes. From Nathalie Dupree's "New Southern Cooking
