Blend in the Crisco until the mixture is coarse and grainy.
Stir in the buttermilk with a fork. Do not over-mix.
Put out onto
a floured board and knead just a few times. Pat out the dough to about 1/2-inch thick. Cut
with a biscuit cutter or glass. Flour the cutter. Do not handle the dough too much
or it will get tough.
Using a heavy cast iron frying pan, place 1 tablespoon of Crisco in the pan and
put the frying pan in the oven for about 7 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven
and place the biscuits in the pan. Turn each once in the oil and bake the biscuits
at 500 degrees F for 10 minutes, or until light brown.
