Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits

Ingrediants needed:
1 Stick of real butter cubed
5 tablespoons shortening
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in bowl and then sift. Add the butter and shortening and using a hand held pastry blender cut the butter and shortening into the flour mixture until the butter bits are about the size of peas. Place the bowl with the flour mixture into the freezer for 30 minutes. Once butter shortening and flour are frozen take out of the freezer and create well in the center and pour the buttermilk into the center. Stir together until just combined. Flip onto a surface to knead together until it forms a loaf that holds together (kneed 3-4 times). Flatten the loaf into a sheet 1/2″ thick and cut biscuits. Re-kneed leftover dough to form more biscuits. Place of a cookie sheet. Brush the tops with heavy cream. Place into a pre-heated 450 degree over for 5 minutes and then reduce the oven temperature to 400 for 10 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
