These have been my favorite biscuits since I first ate them in Hardin, MT.
Preheat oven to 450*.
3 C flour
2 Tbs sugar (or rapadura)
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4-1/2 C shortening (butter)
1 C buttermilk
Stir quickly until mixture forms a soft dough and leaves sides of bowl.
On light floured surface, knead dough 10 times (don't over knead your biscuits or scones). Pat dough into a 7 - 8 inch square. Cut into 9 squares. Bake 12 - 15 minutes or until golden.
