2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup lard or vegetable shortening, chilled
2 tbs butter, chilled
3/4 cup buttermilk, well shaken
Heat oven to 450°. Adjust the oven rack to center position.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Cut in chilled shortening and butter until the pieces are the size of small peas. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients. Pour in buttermilk. With a wooden spoon, gently blend dry ingredients into the buttermilk, just until mixture is clumping together. If necessary, add a few more tsp of buttermilk.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. Pat the dough out into a circle about 8 inches in diameter and 1/2-inch thick. Using a 2 1/2 to 3-inch biscuit cutter, cut out and place on ungreased baking sheet. Gather the scraps and pat into a round and repeat.
Bake on the center oven rack for about 10 to 12 min, until the tops of the biscuits are lightly browned.
Makes 10 to 12 biscuits, depending on the size of biscuit cutter.
