Preheated 450 degree oven
2 cups self rising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons confectioners sugar
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening (such as Crisco)
1−1/2 cups buttermilk
Melted butter (about 1/4 cup)

Stir together the flour, baking powder & 10x sugar.
Cut in the shortening until pieces are about the size of grains of rice.
Stir in the buttermilk.
Knead a few times, roll out on a floured board or counter top to 3/4−inch thickness.
Be careful not to work dough too much or add too much flour, or you'll have dry biscuits.
Cut with an oversized biscuit cutter (about 3− inches).
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake about 12 minutes.
