  • 2 1/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 11/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 11/2 cup butter-flavored shortening (such as Crisco®)
  • 11 cup buttermilk
  • 1 ✕ —Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Sift flour and baking soda together in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a knife or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the mixture and stir in buttermilk until a soft ball forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 2 to 3 minutes. Roll dough out to a 1/2-inch-thick rectangle. Cut biscuits out with biscuit cutter and transfer to a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until tops are light brown and sides begin to darken, about 10 minutes. Remove biscuits to cool completely on a wire rack.
