  1. 3 cups self-rising flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/2 cup cold butter-flavored shortening, diced
  5. 1 cup whole buttermilk
  6. 1/4 cup butter, melted
  7. 12 slices Canadian bacon, cooked and cut in half
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center of mixture. Pour in buttermilk. Using a fork, combine mixture until a soft dough forms.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Using your hands, knead dough for 3 or 4 turns, or until smooth. Using a rolling pin, roll dough to a ½-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch cutter, cut as many biscuits as possible from dough, rerolling scraps no more than twice.
  4. Place biscuits on prepared baking sheets. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat each biscuit with melted butter. Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm with Canadian bacon.
