2 cups All purpose flour, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons shortening, 1 cup chilled buttermilk (whole milk can be used as well).

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using your fingertips, rub butter and shortening into dry ingredients until mixture looks like crumbs. Make a well in the center and pour in the chilled buttermilk. Stir just until the dough comes together. The dough will be very sticky.Turn dough onto floured surface, dust top with flour and gently fold dough over on itself 5 or 6 times. Press into a 1-inch thick round. Cut out biscuits with a 2-inch cutter, being sure to push straight down through the dough. Place biscuits on baking sheet so that they just touch. Reform scrap dough, working it as little as possible and continue cutting.Bake until biscuits are tall and light gold on top, 15 to 20 minutes.
