Old Fashioned Soda Biscuits
 
2 cup  flour
2 tsp  baking soda
4 Tbsp  shortening
3/4 cup  sour milk or buttermilk, i prefer buttermilk
 
sift, then measure flour and sift again with the baking soda and salt. 
with a fork or two table knives, work shortening into flour mixture until 
crumbly. make a well in center of mixture and pour in all but a couple of 
tbsp. buttermilk. stir to make a soft dough. 
 
quickly add the rest of milk if need and stir in with fork. on floured 
surface, lay your piece of dough. to be a good biscuit maker, the less 
you work the dough the better. sprinkle top of dough with flour to 
prevent sticking. with hands knead dough no more than 5 or 6 times. pat 
dough out to 1/2" thin. we always cut this biscuit with something no 
bigger an opening then a baby food jar. they raise up nice and high and 
have no bitter taste that baking powder has. place on ungreased cookie 
sheet. bake in preheated 475 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes. 
 
to make your own sour milk if you don't have buttermilk on hand------add 4 
tbsp. vinegar to 3/4 cup of milk.
