Mom’s baking powder biscuits

4 cups flour
4 tsp sugar
4tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup shortening
3/2 cup buttermilk or sour milk

Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix all dry ingredients, then add the shortening and milk. Bake till the bottoms are brown (for 15-20 minutes, depending on size). When they’re baked, split them in half, butter them, then cover them liberally in fresh, sliced strawberries. We normally eat this for dinner in my family. (:
