Cornmeal Biscuits

these are great in a bowl of chili!
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cornmeal, finer grind
2 Tbl sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 T vinegar in a cup of milk)
2/3 cup shortening
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in shortening using a fork. Add buttermilk till dough forms. Roll out gently to about 1/2" thickness on a sprinkling of cornmeal or flour. Cut out biscuits and place on parchment lined sheet. Bake 18 mins at 425. Makes 10 biscuits. Great with a drizzle of honey!
