Frugal Basic Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

3 c.s flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
4 tsp.s baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
4 tbsps. butter
2 eggs -- lightly beaten
1 1/4 c.s buttermilk
1 spray shortening and corn
meal for coating pan

Preheat oven to 425~. In a food processor or a large bowl,combine the flour
with the salt,sugar,baking powder and baking soda. Cut the butter into
the dry ingredients until the mixture is textured like cornmeal..
Separately combine the eggs with the buttermilk,and stir all but 2 tbs. of
this liquid into the dry mixture. Combine just enough to make a uniformly
moistened dough.. Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a greased and cornmeal
coated cookie sheet about an inch apart. Brush tops with reserved egg and
buttermilk mixture. Bake in the preheated oven until puffed and
brown,about 12 minutes. Cool for a few minutes before serving. Yields
about 15 biscuits..
