soda, and powder. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut the
shortening into the flour mixture until coarse crumbs form.

: 3. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gather into a
disk. Knead lightly a few times until smooth. (The dough may be made
up to two hours ahead, wrapped in plastic wrap, and refrigerated
until ready to use.) : 4. Pat the dough to 3/4 inch thick. Using a
biscuit cutter or a glass dipped in flour, cut out the biscuits.

dough trimmings, pat to 3/4 inch thick, and cut out more biscuits.
