  1. Recipe Instructions Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and blend thoroughly. Cream in the shortening with your fingers or a fork, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the buttermilk a little at a time and, using your hands or a fork, work it in just until its thoroughly incorporated and you have a smooth ball of dough. Do not overwork or overhandle the dough. Lightly flour surface, roll out the dough with a rolling pin to a circle about ??-inches in diameter, 1/2-inch thick.
