Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits

20 mins (prep 20)
6 ingredients
makes about 18 biscuits
We preferred this half shortening-half butter combination, but all of one (even margarine) works well too. If using margarine, use the higher fat varieties or ones labeled "for baking." Shake the carton of buttermilk before measuring.
