Buttermilk Biscuits with Honey Butter

2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup shortening, chilled
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons liquid honey

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Cut in shortening until the size of small peas. Mix in buttermilk to form dough. Do not overmix. On a lightly floured surface, pat dough until about 1" thick, handle as little as possible.
3. Cut dough into desired biscuit shapes and place onto baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown and puffed up.
4. While biscuits are baking, place butter and honey in a saucepan over high heat, stirring until butter has melted. Brush honey butter over warm biscuits. Serve & enjoy!

Makes eight 3" round biscuits.
