- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

- In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk; stir just until the dough clings together.
- Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently, about 10-12 times. Roll to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-in. round biscuit cutter. Place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 11-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.

"I have the original Reminisce magazine recipe from 1992 and it is somewhat different from this webpage. The original recipe does NOT have sugar. It also asks for 2 tsps baking powder. Have not made these yet, but will follow the magazine version when I do."
"These biscuits were awful! They had such a bland taste and I hardly got a dozen out of this recipe let alone 1 1/2 dozen. And they were nowhere near as thick as the photo shows. Never making these again."
"Simple to make and quite tasty. My 4 and 8 year old loved them."
"These were tasty biscuits! Part way through baking, I brushed a mixture of melted butter, parsley flakes, garlic powder, salt, and parmesan cheese on top. Delicious. I will definitely be making these again."
"I make these with sausage gravey. They are a favorite in my family. Shawn, Manchester, Mi"
